Lived History, Lives We’ve Lost, 2012-13, comes to praise the remarkable lives of thirty people.
These tributes by thirty Nation writers each embrace the personal as well as the political. Small, intimate recollections and telling biographical details offer unexpected glimpses often left out of conventional obituaries.
Read William Greider's tale of being shouted down while guest lecturing at his friend Larry Goodwyn's history class; Rick Perlstein's memory of Aaron Swartz building him his first website; Jessica Valenti's recollection of watching Adam Yauch's acceptance speech at the MTV Music Videos Awards and cheering—then crying with relief; Greg Grandin's description of his first meeting with Hugo Chavez; and many more.
This collection of stories celebrates life.
By focusing on often unsung and underappreciated efforts for social justice that illuminated their lives, these pieces share the history of struggles that continue.
