This co-edited, co-authored, anthology provides deep reflections on the question of how one can live radical principles in contemporary times. What does it mean to be human? How does one embed love and justice in one’s worldview and daily practice? Rod Bush, our partner, colleague, teacher, mentor, comrade, and friend, was well known as an activist scholar who incorporated his values into his teaching, mentorship and everyday interactions. Therefore, his theoretical interests and practical involvements in movements are intimately linked and simultaneous. In his early twenties, Rod Bush dedicated his life to the liberation of Black people and all humankind, working as a full time activist, and then as a movement scholar. He remained deeply committed to that vow throughout his life.
