This text presents art and writing which is political rather than theorizing about how art and writing might be political. The wide array of voices and styles is one of the book's strengths as it not only offers a multi-faceted approach toward activism and positive change, but also speaks a range of emotions from anger, passion, and fear, to joy and courage. This book also opens and creates space for the humor and hope which can come even in the presence of violence and despair.

Review:

"I found the book fascinating. When I sat down to read, I found I literally did not want to put it down.

"I found this book to be one of the most interesting and engaging literary-artistic collections I've ever read. Many times while reading, I found myself lingering over passages so as to savor each and every word. There are few collections in this field that provide the range of genre and depth of issues and themes identified by the editors of Cultural Activisms." -- Michelle Meyers, Independent Scholar

The contributors represent a wide spectrum; some are living, some dead, some famous (e.g. James Baldwin and Adrienne Rich), and some (most) little known. The unifying theme is the perspective of the
