Quote: Revolutionary Listening

Now there's the real question: Can we all get along long enough to make a revolution? Perhaps, but history tells us that it will mean taking leadership from some very radical women of color, and if that's the case I'm not holding my breath. What the old-guard male militants really need to do is give up the mic for a moment, listen to the victims of democracy sing their dreams of a new world, and take notes on how to fight for the freedom of all.

-- Robin D.G. Kelley (Freedom Dreams p. 156, emphasis in original)
