DIA Portrays Idealism--Way to Go!,
This review is from: Do It Anyway: The New Generation of Activists (Paperback)
I devoured Martin's latest work of non fiction, "Do It Anyway," because of her accuracy and the way it speaks to my generation. I truly admire her work because she is a social activist in her own right--choosing to write 200 pages about other activists is social change in itself. She uses her power and privilege in order to bring attention to some serious issues at hand. It is a wake up call for all of us. I also admire the idealism within this work. I think that idealism can often be described as naive (as said by Publisher's Weekly), but it's actually not something to be ashamed of. Idealism means hoping for the best outcome and owning feelings of optimism--which is exactly what we need in our country right now. Thanks, Ms. Martin!
