HISTORY TEACHES US TO RESIST How Progressive Movements Have Succeeded in Challenging Times

by | Read by Janina Edwards

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Berry explores progressive resistance in the time period between FDR's and George W. Bush's presidencies. He articulates the powerful ways social justice movements have pushed their agendas further and refused to abandon advances in human rights. Janina Edwards narrates in a firm, direct voice that also adjusts for the more emotional aspects of the audiobook such as the violence, negligence, and other harm perpetrated upon vulnerable populations. Equally important, Edwards conveys the conviction and the hope of Berry's prose as progressives move from decade to decade, exploring ever-present social tension as they seek recognition and respect for all people. Overall, Berry's work provides a meaningful and important history for those in need of hope and a blueprint for how progressives can continue their fight.
