On March 15, 1968 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a sermon at Central United Methodist Church in Detroit, MI entitled, "The Meaning of Hope." In this sermon Dr. King reminded the church of its responsibility to "keep the flame of hope burning" by becoming "custodians of hopefulness." For King, hope was absolutely necessary to survive in times of far-reaching injustice.

What is this hope that King speaks of? Where does this hope come from? Where can this hope lead us?

In this book I explore the meaning of hope from both a religious and non-religious perspective. I also provide quotes from some of the most important writings and orations by significant revolutionaries such as MLK, Assata Shakur, Malcolm X, Ida B. Wells, Huey P. Newton, and Angela Davis that have inspired generations of people to keep pushing through adversity in order to secure a better future.

This book will be a completely FREE resource that will inspire, enlighten, and be the sustenance needed to continue the fight for liberation. It will be available in PRINT on May 19th.
