This twenty-first-century activists’ guide to upending mainstream ideas about race, class, and gender carves out a path to collective liberation through the Black radical tradition. Drawing on Black intelectual and grassroots organizing-including the Haitian Revolution, the US civil rights movement, and the LGBTQ rights and feminist movements- Sin concesiones calls on all of us engaged in the social justice struggle to make the movement more Black, more radical, more queer, and more feminist.

Charlene Carruthers’s journey has been mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually challenging, and she candidly shares stories of her own community-organizing experiences and from her own life. Blending the personal with the historical, Sin concesiones is a vision for how social justice movements can become sharper and more effective through principled struggle and self-awareness, healing justice, and leadership development.

The book also offers a flexible model of what deeply effective organizing can be, anchored in the Chicago model of activism, wich features long-term commitment, cultural sensitivity, creative strategizing, and multiple cross-group alliances. Crucially, Sin concesiones provides a clear framework for activists committed to building transformative power, encouraging young people to see themselves as visionaries and leaders.

Sin concesiones is nothing less than an invitation to revolutionary action.
