On The Freedom Side by Wesley C. Hogan


Out of stock


“In todays political climate, alongside tensions arising within the United States it is easy for individuals to succumb to feeling powerless against a system that needs change. Wesley C. Hogan drives the idea that Democracy allows young people to be the change they want to see. He presents us with important figures in movements such as Black Lives Matter, and the individuals who protested at Standing Rock to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, and offers us perspective on the impact the youth had on their respective communities. This book is a great read not only for learning about contemporary issues in which young people have taken action but also individuals like Ella Baker who was involved with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in the 1960s. If you are feeling hopeless in an issue that you or your community faces this book is the perspective you need. Finally, don’t be alarmed by the length of the book! It so articulately gives proper acknowledgements, notes, and citations of the information presented.”
