The rich legacy of black critical thought, creative expression, and religious reflection come together in this imagined conversation among the elders about the shape and conditions of black liberation.
Barbara Holmes has defined key issues of freedom and identity, hypothesizing a meeting of the ancestors assembled "on the other side" to discuss them. Imagine conversations between Barbara Jordan and Thurgood Marshall on what freedom looks like in relation to law and politics, or between Tupac Shakur, Nina Simone,and James Baldwin on art, culture, and the liberation of the mind. A unique resource for understanding the luminaries of liberation and an important reflection on the contemporary task of black liberation.
