Stayed on Freedom (hardcover)


The Black Power movement, often associated with its iconic spokesmen, derived much of its energy from the work of people whose stories have never been told. ‘Stayed On Freedom’ brings into focus two unheralded Black Power activists who dedicated their lives to the fight for freedom. Zoharah Simmons and Michael Simmons fell in love while organizing tenants and workers in the South. Their commitment to each other and to social change took them on a decades-long journey that traversed first the country and then the world. In centering their lives, historian Dan Berger shows how Black Power united the local and the global across organizations and generations. Based on hundreds of hours of interviews, ‘Stayed On Freedom’ is a moving and intimate portrait of two people trying to make a life while working to make a better world.
