From the days when Zola and Peguy brandished their pens in pursuit of political action, the question of Literature at the service of Political Commitment has remained a live issue, most of all in France. As this century saw the rise first of Communism, then of Fascism, French intellectuals have hurried to take sides and devote their writings to the good of their chosen Cause. If Breton and some of his fellow-Surrealists, as also Sartre and Aragon, favoured the Left, Bataille, Celine and Drieu La Rochelle were no less passionate advocates of the Far Right. There were also nice shadings of political casuistry as Red veered to Pink and eventually even to True Blue; Malraux was one of the great men to skate across the spectrum. In this book we shall witness many a sacred cow being led to the slaughter as we consider the impact on the French intelligentsia of the Bolshevik Revolution, the Third Reich, the Spanish Civil War, the Algerian War and other crucial turning points in this century, and the nation's writers fashion a philosophy to match. To follow Bernard-Henri Levy, one of the high priests of the "new philosophers", in his quest is an altogether stimulating exercise.

David Cecelski chronicles one of the most sustained and successful protests of the civil rights movement--the 1968-69 school boycott in Hyde County, North Carolina. For an entire year, the county's black citizens refused to send their children to school in protest of a desegregation plan that required closing two historically black schools in their remote coastal community. Parents and students held nonviolent protests daily for five months, marched twice on the state capitol in Raleigh, and drove the Ku Klux Klan out of the county in a massive gunfight. The threatened closing of Hyde County's black schools collided with a rich and vibrant educational heritage that had helped to sustain the black community since Reconstruction. As other southern school boards routinely closed black schools and displaced their educational leaders, Hyde County blacks began to fear that school desegregation was undermining--rather than enhancing--this legacy. This book, then, is the story of one county's extraordinary struggle for civil rights, but at the same time it explores the fight for civil rights in all of eastern North Carolina and the dismantling of black education throughout the South.

"Claude Lightfoot ... is a leading Communist spokesman and an important voice among the Negro people. He was indicted, convicted, and later free, in a federal trial for the 'crime' of being a member of the Communist Party under the fascist-like provisions of the Smith Act. Mr. Lightfoot's case drew wide support as a test of the doctrine of 'guilt by association'. But more than that, his defense was based on the American Bill of Rights, of the right of all Americans - Communists included - freely to think, speak, write and exchange their views and opinions in the public arena."--To the reader.

Growing up in the Ohio Valley, Hazel Clayton Harrison dreamed of becoming a writer but she knew of no black writers. At Kent State University, she majored in elementary education. After earning her master's degree in education, she began a career in public and private education. While working as a corporate trainer, she pursued her passion for creative writing. In the 1980s her poetry and prose began to appear in various journals and anthologies including, Full Circle (editions 1-27), River Crossings, Grandfathers, A Rock Against the Wind, Coiled Serpent, Spectrum 15, and Altadena Poetry Review Anthology (2015-2019 editions). She is the author of a children's book, The Story of Christmas Tree Lane. Her memoir, Crossing the River Ohio, was published in 2014. Now retired from the corporate arena, she operates JAH Light Media, her own editing and publishing company, and serves as the 2018-2020 Altadena Poet Laureate for community events. She is a member of the Pasadena Rose Poets and participates in poetry readings throughout Southern California. ​"Down Freedom Road is a cornucopia of universal truths about the human condition, prohibited, inspired, and inalienable. Hazel Clayton Harrison makes them universal and specific, particularly for Black Americans who have lived in a different world historically, culturally, and spiritually with reverence for the earth that sustains. Beyond ritual, reparations, and reconciliation, the poetry and prose culled in this literary gift reflect the socioeconomic injustice, hatred, racism, bigotry, and stigma placed on a people for centuries. Though the journey is often rough, jagged, perilous, and steep, until freedom is realized, you must travel Down Freedom Road. " --C. Jerome Woods, Author/Editor ​"Hazel Clayton Harrison creates poetry that connects and honors her family, ancestors, and historical icons. They whisper in our ears, offer images in her dreams, and celebrate her words that bloom on the page. Lifted by her voice, her poetry stays with us-timeless-precious. --Gerda Govine Ituarte, Author
