"We Need You" Book Reviews
Attorney Mawuli Davis’ WE NEED YOU is a powerful testimony to the coming of age, growth and development, parenthood, and thinking of a revolutionary, African-centered Black professional and freedom fighter. This book is intentionally built on a foundation of numerous movement Ancestors and Elders. WE NEED YOU chronicles Davis’ insights and memories navigating his growth in radical Black political and social consciousness while serving in the United States Navy, engaging the African-centered education and reparations movement, and building grassroots empowerment and unity among Black men. His chapter on being an activist father in the midst of Black rebellion and protest is particularly powerful. This book is a must for anyone interested in organizing and service in African descendant communities during the period of Black Lives Matter
