Flap copy

Both mainstream and movement history too often focus on the lives of 'great men.' But who really does the work of grassroots movement-building? Singer, activist, working mother, poet, photographer, and writer, Marianne Robinson is one of many women who have held up their 'half of the sky' in progressive movements. Her moving autobiography spans many decades of cultural and political activity in People's Songs, labor, women's and anti-war movements from the 1940s onward."show more
