This exciting history of renegade intellectuals and artists of the African diaspora throughout the twentieth century begins with the premise that the catalyst for political engagement has rarely been misery, poverty, or oppression. People are drawn to social movement because of hope: their dreams of a new world radically different from the one they inherited. Our imagination may be the most revolutionary tool available to us, and yet we have failed to understand its political importance and recognize it as a powerful social force. From Paul Robeson to Aime Cesaire to Jayne Cortez, Kelley unearths freedom dreams in African and Third World liberation movements, in the hope that Communism offered, in the imaginative mindscapes of Surrealism, in the transformative potential of radical feminism, and in the four-hundred-year-old dream of reparations for slavery and Jim Crow. With Freedom Dreams, Kelley affirms his place as "a major new voice on the intellectual left" (Frances Fox Piven) and shows us that any serious movement toward freedom must begin in the mind.

Freedom Over Me

ISBN: 9781481456913
Release Date: 2016-09-13
Genre: Juvenile Fiction

Newbery Honor Book Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Book Using original slave auction and plantation estate documents, Ashley Bryan offers a moving and powerful picture book that contrasts the monetary value of a slave with the priceless value of life experiences and dreams that a slave owner could never take away. Imagine being looked up and down and being valued as less than chair. Less than an ox. Less than a dress. Maybe about the same as…a lantern. You, an object. An object to sell. In his gentle yet deeply powerful way, Ashley Bryan goes to the heart of how a slave is given a monetary value by the slave owner, tempering this with the one thing that CAN’T be bought or sold—dreams. Inspired by the actual will of a plantation owner that lists the worth of each and every one of his “workers”, Bryan has created collages around that document, and others like it. Through fierce paintings and expansive poetry he imagines and interprets each person’s life on the plantation, as well as the life their owner knew nothing about—their dreams and pride in knowing that they were worth far more than an Overseer or Madam ever would guess. Visually epic, and never before done, this stunning picture book is unlike anything you’ve seen.

Arab Spring Dreams

Author: Nasser Weddady
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
ISBN: 9780230393707
Release Date: 2012-05-08
Genre: Political Science

From a gay man secretly mourning his lover's suicide in Morocco to a young woman denied schooling because of religious discrimination in Iran, Arab Spring Dreams spotlights some of the Middle East's most outspoken young dissidents. The essayists cover a wide range of experiences, including premarital sex, the lack of educational opportunities, teenage marriage, and the fight for political freedom. They also highlight how repressive laws and cultural mores snuff out liberty and stifle growth and consider how previous movements - particularly the American civil rights struggle - might be channeled to effect change in their own countries. Beautifully written and profoundly moving, these stories present a decisive call for change at a crucial point in the evolution of the Middle East.

Dreams of Peace and Freedom

Author: Jay Winter
Publisher: Yale University Press
ISBN: 0300127510
Release Date: 2008-10-01
Genre: History

In the wake of the monstrous projects of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and others in the twentieth century, the idea of utopia has been discredited. Yet, historian Jay Winter suggests, alongside the “major utopians” who murdered millions in their attempts to transform the world were disparate groups of people trying in their own separate ways to imagine a radically better world. This original book focuses on some of the twentieth-century’s “minor utopias” whose stories, overshadowed by the horrors of the Holocaust and the Gulag, suggest that the future need not be as catastrophic as the past. The book is organized around six key moments when utopian ideas and projects flourished in Europe: 1900 (the Paris World's Fair), 1919 (the Paris Peace Conference), 1937 (the Paris exhibition celebrating science and light), 1948 (the Universal Declaration of Human Rights), 1968 (moral indictments and student revolt), and 1992 (the emergence of visions of global citizenship). Winter considers the dreamers and the nature of their dreams as well as their connections to one another and to the history of utopian thought. By restoring minor utopias to their rightful place in the recent past, Winter fills an important gap in the history of social thought and action in the twentieth century.

Dream To Freedom

Author: Robert Hoss
Publisher: Hay House, Inc

Release Date: 2013-06-01
Genre: Psychology

Dreams are often laden with emotion. Not only do the dreams themselves contain emotional triggers, but a frightening dream can leave us stressed and shaken in waking life. We might also be anxious about the possible recurrence of a bad dream. The Dream to Freedom technique is an effective way to address both the fear-producing aspects of dreams, and the waking anxiety associated with the possible recurrence of the dream. Using a structured approach drawn from traditional Gestalt therapy, it identifies emotionally triggering elements of a dream, and then applies EFT (also known as "tapping") to each one in turn. Robert and Lynne Hoss are pioneers of the Dream to Freedom technique, which shows you the hidden meaning of each dream element. This practice, when combined with EFT, often provides surprising insights about the link between the dream and your waking life problems. Dream to Freedom guides you on an imaginal journey to creating positive outcomes in your dreams. It's also been used to: Evoke lucid dreams; Eliminate recurring nightmares; Remember forgotten dreams; Access subconscious creativity; Heal old childhood traumas; Reduce emotional triggering when you can't recall a specific event; Heal anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and other psychological problems; Tap within dreams. Dream to Freedom represents one of the most fascinating frontiers in which EFT can be applied, and is recommended for longtime dreamwork students as well as those with a more casual interest in the intersection between dreamwork, personal growth, and EFT.

A Dream Deferred

Author: Shelby Steele
Publisher: Harper Collins
ISBN: 9780061743498
Release Date: 2009-10-13
Genre: Literary Collections

From the author of the award-winning bestseller The Content of Our Character comes a new essay collection that tells the untold story behind the polarized racial politics in America today. In A Dream Deferred Shelby Steele argues that a second betrayal of black freedom in the United States--the first one being segregation--emerged from the civil rights era when the country was overtaken by a powerful impulse to redeem itself from racial shame. According to Steele,1960s liberalism had as its first and all-consuming goal the expiation of America guilt rather than the careful development of true equality between the races. This "culture of preference" betrayed America's best principles in order to give whites and America institutions an iconography of racial virtue they could use against the stigma of racial shame. In four densely argued essays, Steele takes on the familiar questions of affirmative action, multiculturalism, diversity, Afro-centrism, group preferences, victimization--and what he deems to be the atavistic powers of race, ethnicity, and gender, the original causes of oppression. A Dream Deferred is an honest, courageous look at the perplexing dilemma of race and democracy in the United States--and what we might do to resolve it.
