|Description||This is the autobiography of a remarkable life. As the New York Times wrote, "A first generation Venezuelan-American ... Mr. Camejo [spoke] out against the Vietnam War and for the rights of migrant workers. He marched in Selma, Alabama, with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King." As a veteran of the civil rights, antiwar, environmental, and socialist movements, Camejo's was an impassioned voice of discontent. His many campaigns for public office provided a unique platform for challenging the priorities of a system that prizes profit above all else. |
Camejo's memoir describes a life devoted to the fight for a better world. His story traverses the Americas, bringing readers inside many of the defining moments of the last half-century. The resulting book serves as a record of both Camejo's uncompromising commitment to justice and as a guide to the struggles to come.
