We Have Not Been Moved: Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America


Manufacturer: PM Press

Product Information

With foreword by Cornel West and afterpoems by Sonia Sanchez and Alice Walker.

"We Have Not Been Moved addresses two of the leading pillars of U.S. Empire—war and racism. Inspired by the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who called for a 'true revolution of values' against racism and militarism, this book recognizes that—for the most part—the peace movement has not moved far beyond the fifty-year-old call for a deepening critique of its own prejudices. While reviewing the major points of intersection between white supremacy and the war machine through both historic and contemporary articles from a diverse range of scholars and activists, the editors emphasize what needs to be done now to move forward for lasting social change. Produced in collaboration with the War Resisters League, the book also examines the strategic possibilities of radical transformation through revolutionary nonviolence.

Among the texts included are rarely seen writings by antiracist icons such as Anne Braden, Barbara Deming, and Audre Lorde, as well as a dialogue between Dr. King, revolutionary nationalist Robert F. Williams, Dave Dellinger, and Dorothy Day. Never-before-published pieces appear from civil rights organizer Bayard Rustin, Joel Kovel, Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons, Fred Ho, and Bob Brown. Other contributions include work by Andrea Dworkin, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Starhawk, Andrea Smith, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Frida Berrigan, David Gilbert, Chris Crass, and many others. Peppered throughout the anthology are poems and photographs from Chrystos, Dylcia Pagán, Carrie Mae Weems, and many more."
