“As protests and demonstrations sprout across the land, young organizers and activists need to know why and how movements are sustained, and how they grow. That resource has arrived. It’s a slim volume, chock full of artwork, entitled WHEN WE FIGHT, WE WIN!. It discusses victories and losses, high points and depths, lessons learned, and missed opportunities. The core of its message is that social movements really matter, and when they are smart, adaptive, determined, and focused, they can win against tremendous odds. For such movements change minds, they transform consciousness, and they build social power that their opponents cannot resist. They echo, in action, the words of one of the greatest black leaders in American history, Frederick Douglass, who said, ‘Without struggle, there is no progress.’”
