about

This new edition, featuring essays by Angela Davis that focus on the importance political resistance and freedom struggle, will introduce Frederick Douglass’s Narrative to the Obama generation. Already a cornerstone of every African American studies syllabus, the new edition has the potential to become the edition adopted by progressive-leaning professors and department heads. Newly relevant given the election of Barack Obama, Angela Davis discusses why and how the Narrative is important today for understanding freedom, conscience, resistance and social justice. Will be supported and promoted by the Pacifica Archives, the Pacifica Radio (including Democracy Now). In order to capture the largest market share, particularly in ongoing backlist orders from course adoptions, the title remains the same as the original edition. As this is a new critical edition, however, Angela Y. Davis is listed as a co-author, rather than an editor or contributor. The New Critical Edition is intended to be released, promoted and marketed at the same time as Davis's collection of speeches, The Meaning of Freedom, forthcoming from City Lights in Fall 09.
