I was watching Book Talk: “Power Concedes Nothing” with Linda Burnham and Deepak Pateriya. It was very instructive for anyone who’s turning their attention to the coming elections and what it will take to win in November. https://youtu.be/FcAacJv3erEWatching.

In her introductory comments, Burnham mentioned that the book’s title comes from a speech of Frederick Douglass: “West India Emancipation,” delivered at Canandaigua, New York, on August 3, 1857. She went on to recommened reading the speech in its entirety, noting the combination of tactics, including parlieamentary struggle, that resulted in freedom and emancipation and mentioning their contemporary relevance. I followed Burham’s advice and was richly rewarded.
