"I have been a political, social, and spiritual activist for most of my life, and feel connected to peoples and struggles all over the world," states the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Color Purple and The Chicken Chronicles, setting the tone for this 2013 collection of 78 short essays. With her usual passion and creativity, here Alice Walker writes of Barack Obama's election and first term, Beethoven and Mozart, her support for the Palestinians, and her gratitude at receiving the LennonOno Grant for Peace. Here too are tributes to Edwidge Danticat, Cicely Tyson, Howard Zinn, and Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi.

"Walker's compassion, courage, and humor gain strength and eloquence essay by essay."—Booklist
