Synopsis

No Struggle, No Progress: A Warrior's Life from Black Power to Education Reform is the story of one man's life journey into the heart of the struggle to reform our nation's schools. Howard Fuller has dedicated his life to helping poor and working class Black people gain access to the levers of power dictating their lives. Early in his life, Fuller found truth in the words of Frederick Douglass: "Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will." One of the driving forces of Fuller's life work has been the understanding of the relationship between struggle and progress, which drove him down dark alleys and dirt roads in some of North Carolina's poorest communities in the 1960s and into the bush, mountains and war-torn villages of Africa nearly a decade later. Culminating into a lifetime of fighting to revolutionize education. Fighting for those without the power or resources to fight for themselves; dealing with the issues and power structures that undergird the most contentious education disputes of this era.
