Speak Truth To Power (Paperback)
by Kerry Kennedy Photographs by Eddie Adams
Accompanies a traveling international exhibition, a play, and an education curriculum

Speak Truth to Power presents inspiring heroes from more than thirty-five countries, including Balthasar Garsón, Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, Asma Jahangir, and Wangari Maathai. In searing and uplifting interviews, veteran human rights defender Kerry Kennedy examines the quality of courage with women and men who are dramatically changing the course of events in their communities and countries. Imprisoned, tortured, and threatened with death, they speak with compelling eloquence on subjects to which they have devoted their lives and for which they have been willing to sacrifice from free expression to the rule of law, from women’s rights to religious liberty, from environmental defense to eradicating slavery, from access to capitol to the right to due process.

The remarkable and highly lauded Speak Truth to Power project, directed by Ms. Kennedy and Nan Richardson, includes an exhibition of photographs, a play, Speak Truth to Power: Voices From Beyond the Dark, written by distinguished author and playwright Ariel Dorfman, as well as an education curriculum distributed free to schools in the United States through Amnesty International and Italy (through partnerships with provinces and municipalities), and an award-winning website, www.SpeakTruthtoPower.org. A PBS documentary film of the project’s launch debut was hosted by President Clinton at the Kennedy Center and starred John Malkovitch, Kevin Kline, Sigourney Weaver, Alec Baldwin, and other major actors.
