Black Radical: The Education of an American Revolutionary

By Nelson Peery

Black Fire: The Making of an American Revolutionary, a memoir of his years as a Black soldier in World War II, shows how a person becomes a revolutionary through life experience. His sequel, Black Radical, shows the WWII Black veterans as the organizing force in the Freedom Movement, the role of the revolutionary Left and the development of his family.

Poet, author, visionary

A two-time national slam poet, grand slam champion of the Damn Slam Los Angeles 2011 and author of "For What I Might Do Tomorrow." Born in California, Matt writes from the vantage point of a second generation Chicano born in an era of diminishing opportunities and a crumbling economy. His writing, a fearless, challenging and at times even confrontational blend of humor, history and political theory is a reflection of those realities.
