The beloved actor and progressive elder shares the long view of how change happens, and how we’re called upon today as never before to reclaim our rights and responsibilities as citizens. From South Africa to Detroit and Birmingham, he scans the arc of justice and the convergence of the movements to restore nature, human dignity and a life lived artistically.
