ZAWADI BOOKS: Suggested Readings During this Critical Time

A heartfelt “Thank You” to all who have supported Zawadi Books during this critical time.  We stand in support for all who push for liberation and justice in our communities and throughout the world. 

In the words of Frederick Douglass at a speech given at Canandaigua, New York on August 3, 1857:  “The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims have been born of earnest struggle…If there is no struggle, there is no progress.  Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters…Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”
