With this collection, Kevin Powell, a writer and civil and human rights activist, presents a stunning and brutally honest survey of his own recent personal trials, a deep dive into the heart and soul of America, and a consideration of the condition of our planet, searching for solutions to bring justice and equality for every human being. As we face a variety of social, political, and ecological troubles, he thoughtfully considers questions of love versus hate and community versus chaos, raised by Dr. King long ago. Powell addresses contemporary concerns about leadership, history, family, parenting, education, the American legal system, racism, sexism, forgiveness, mental health, violence, and what the word “freedom” does and should mean for us all. In this essential volume, Powell’s prose unites the political, personal, and poetic. When We Free the World provides thought-provoking, politically astute, and culturally relevant commentary directed toward an audience concerned with social justice, social issues, and cultural politics.
