    "THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING brings the Sixties and Seventies alive in a
    remarkable set of photos and essays. The photos are strikingly dramatic and
    will recall to those who lived in those years the emotion, the anger, the
    joy of participating in the great social movements of our time. The essays
    are short, pungent, and wide-ranging as they recall the richness, the
    cameraderie of those historic struggles for peace and justice."
    -Howard Zinn, historian and author of A People's History of the United States

    "These photos and narrative capture the spirit of the sixties. The spirit
    - David Hilliard, Chief of Staff, Black Panther Party

    "The photos and text brings forth love and inspiration to my heart and
    eyes, and inspire not only myself to continued work, but, I hope, younger
    generations to come."
    -Winona LaDuke, Native American activist & Green Party candidate for U.S.
    Vice President, 2000
