Publisher Comments:

What keeps us going when times get tough? How have the leaders and unsung heroes of world-changing political movements persevered in the face of cynicism, fear, and seemingly overwhelming odds? In The Impossible Will Take a Little While, they answer these questions in their own words. The collection creates a conversation among some of the most visionary and eloquent voices of our times, including Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, Howard Zinn, Alice Walker, Jonathan Kozol, Diane Ackerman, Tony Kushner, Cornel West, Van Jones, and Desmond Tutu. After 22 printings, editor Paul Rogat Loeb has comprehensively updated this classic work on what it's like to go up against Goliath--whether it’s apartheid in South Africa, segregation in Mississippi, dictators in the Arab world, or greedy banks right here at home. These stories don't sugarcoat the obstacles to success; instead, they inspire hope and keep us moving forward.

Synopsis:

"An anthology of some of the most powerful voices of our time." - Boston Globe

I read an excerpt on Facebook and had to order this book. As an activist I need all the "lifts" I can get.
