"The film brings you up close inside Cornel West's and Bob Avakian's dialogue: the passion, the audacity, the science, the morality, the revolutionary substance. Two courageous voices modeling a morality that refuses to accept injustice – pouring heart and soul into standing together challenging all of us to fight for a world worthy of humanity."

Andy Zee,
co-director of the film


BA Speaks

"No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."

Communism: A Whole New World and the Emancipation of All Humanity – Not "The Last Shall Be First, and The First Shall Be Last."

BAsics 2:1

On the weekend of May 1, the movement for revolution should celebrate this holiday with revolutionary internationalist dinners. These celebrations should have international dishes and internationalist culture, and should feature the excerpt “What If...” from the filmed Dialogue between Bob Avakian and Cornel West. REVOLUTION AND RELIGION: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion.

In addition, there should be special efforts on Saturday, May 2, to get out massive amounts of the palm cards advertising this Dialogue, raise funds for BA Everywhere, and get out this issue of Revolution.
