    2. Truly one of the best books I ve ever read on the civil rights movement and fight for economic opportunity and how the two are, at the core, inseparable As the title says, freedom is not enough People must have the opportunity to earn a living and to provide for their families Without this, the promise of freedom rings hollow I don t think it would be an exaggeration to say that it is nearly impossible for those of us who were not deeply involved in the 50s 60s movements or are not Ph.D.s in Ame [...]
