Editorial Reviews

Review

“A bold and provocative celebration of the black radical imagination in the 20th century.”
—Laura Ciolkowski, The New York Times Book Review

“Based on Kelley’s belief that to make a better world we must first imagine it, this brilliantly conceived and written book recounts the accomplishments of black activists and thinkers over the past century who have been committed to remaking the world.”
Library Journal

“Through this masterful book of black radical history and philosophy, I can look past the dreariness of our unfree world with the binoculars of the imaginary, learning from those female and male 20th century activists Kelley chronicled, who refused to let any oppressor stop their movement dreams of a free life, of a free world.”
—Ibram X. Kendi, author of Stamped From the Beginning
