Peu de figures universellement célébrées sont aussi mal connues que Martin Luther King Jr. La lutte pour les droits civiques et l'égalité des Noirs dont le pasteur baptiste prit la tête est remémorée comme un appel à la fraternité et à l'unité nationale que l'Amérique sut entendre. Ce récit édifiant a considérablement aseptisé la force révolutionnaire de sa pensée et la brutalité de l'oppression contre laquelle il s'insurgeait. Qui se souvient qu'à peine un an après avoir reçu le prix Nobel de la paix, King déclara que son rêve était devenu un cauchemar en raison de l'enracinement du système d'exploitation capitaliste ? La fin de la ségrégation institutionnelle en 1964 n'était à ses yeux qu'une étape. L'ultime phase de son combat, qui culmina avec la " Campagne des pauvres " et que son assassinat en 1968 laissa inachevée, fut quasiment effacée de la mémoire des États-Unis et avec elle le sens profond de son engagement. Penseur de la justice sociale, Martin Luther King opéra une extraordinaire synthèse entre christianisme, liturgie noire, non-violence, désobéissance civile et marxisme. C'est ce penseur avant-gardiste et radical à la postérité édulcorée que cet ouvrage entend faire redécouvrir en l'inscrivant dans une tradition de dissidence américaine trop souvent ignorée. Sylvie Laurent est américaniste, agrégée d'histoire et docteur en littérature américaine. Chercheur associée à Harvard et Stanford, elle enseigne à Sciences Po. Elle a notamment publié Homérique Amérique (Seuil, 2008) et Poor White Trash. La pauvreté odieuse du Blanc américain (Presses de l'université Paris-Sorbonne, 2011).

Shortly before his assassination, Martin Luther King Jr. called for a radical redistribution of economic and political power to transform the whole of society. In 1967, he envisioned and designed the Poor People’s Campaign, an interracial effort that was carried out after his death. This campaign brought together impoverished Americans of all races to demand better wages, better jobs, better homes, and better education. King and the Other America explores this overlooked and obscured episode of the late civil rights movement, deepening our understanding of King’s commitment to social justice and also of the long-term trajectory of the civil rights movement. Digging into earlier radical arguments about economic inequality across America, which King drew on throughout his entire political and religious life, Sylvie Laurent argues that the Poor People’s Campaign was the logical culmination of King’s influences and ideas, which have had lasting impact on young activists and the public. Fifty years later, growing inequality and grinding poverty in the United States have spurred new efforts to rejuvenate the campaign. This book draws the connections between King's perceptive thoughts on substantive justice and the ongoing quest for equality for all.

Year: 2012
Named one of the best graphic novels of the year by The AV Club, Comic Book Resources, Complex, and Graphic Novel Reporter! "The most prodigiously talented graphic novelist of his [generation] ... Powell's exceptional visual-storytelling gift transforms a potentially obvious antiwar parable into a ravishingly beautiful, emotionally resonant, thoughtful, and provocative work of art."-- Booklist (starred review) "Vivid and imaginative... The timely, innovative storytelling and captivating artwork should particularly appeal to fans of Craig Thompson's Blankets and David Small's Stitches. Highly recommended for both adults and young adults."-- Library Journal (starred review) "Any Empire by Nate Powell is everything a graphic novel should be, and few are. Spare, to the point dialog, fluid and effortless visual storytelling devoid of pretensions, and a story with characters that stick with you. I very rarely read graphic novels because I usually can't get past the first few pages. but Any Empire drew me in from the start and didn't let up."-- Larry Hama, author of GI Joe comics since 1982 "At times poignant, at at others surreal, Any Empire is an engaging, never preachy work about childhood, centering on those secret currents that define our youthful rivalries and the games we play."-- MTV Geek "We've all experienced the world's endless cycle of innocence shattered, and Powell renders it all in lovely chiaroscuro... he crafts memorable and heartfelt characters that linger in the mind and scar the heart."-- Under the Radar Nate Powell, hailed by the London Times as "a writer-artist of genius,"is back. His new book, Any Empire, is a vivid examination of war and violence, and their trickle-down effects on middle America. First, a group of small-town kids find themselves bound together by geography, boredom, and a string of mysterious turtle mutilations. Years later, with Army tanks rolling through the streets of their hometown, these young adults are forced to confront painful questions of privilege, duty, betrayal, and courage. Any Empire recalls aimless summers of Nancy Drew and GI Joe, treehouses and army surplus stores... but when fantasy starts to bleed into reality, whose mission will be accomplished?

Abolition Democracy

Abolition Democracy

Author: Angela Y. Davis
Publisher: Seven Stories Press
ISBN: 1609801032
Pages: 62
Year: 2011-01-04
Revelations about U.S policies and practices of torture and abuse have captured headlines ever since the breaking of the Abu Ghraib prison story in April 2004. Since then, a debate has raged regarding what is and what is not acceptable behavior for the world’s leading democracy. It is within this context that Angela Davis, one of America’s most remarkable political figures, gave a series of interviews to discuss resistance and law, institutional sexual coercion, politics and prison. Davis talks about her own incarceration, as well as her experiences as "enemy of the state," and about having been put on the FBI’s "most wanted" list. She talks about the crucial role that international activism played in her case and the case of many other political prisoners. Throughout these interviews, Davis returns to her critique of a democracy that has been compromised by its racist origins and institutions. Discussing the most recent disclosures about the disavowed "chain of command," and the formal reports by the Red Cross and Human Rights Watch denouncing U.S. violation of human rights and the laws of war in Guantánamo, Afghanistan and Iraq, Davis focuses on the underpinnings of prison regimes in the United States.
