If you're already familiar with the work of Angela Davis, this collection will feel sparse and unimportant. If you're not, it could be a good way to dive in, though I would recommend YouTube interviews and panels over what is present here. The interviews lack the compelling and engaged back-and-forth that make interviews worth reading (horrible interviewer!) and the ideas (which draw heavily from Davis's past work) repeat themselves endlessly. These thoughts deserve a better home!
