Power Concedes Nothing

One Woman's Quest for Social Justice in America, from the Courtroom to the Kill Zones

  • customer reviews
Connie Rice has taken on the bus system, the school system, the death penalty, gangs, and the LAPD—and won. Now, with an electrifying, inimitable voice, Rice illuminates the origins and inspiration for her life’s work in this “genuinely compelling” (Kirkus Reviews) account. Part memoir, part call to action, Power Concedes Nothing is pas­sionate, provocative, and studded with dramatic stories of a life in the trenches of civil rights. Inspired by the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., Connie Rice has written a “remarkable” (Publishers Weekly) blueprint for a new generation of justice seekers.
