When the United States recently exploded with unprecedented demonstrations challenging racial violence and hatred, Alice Walker’s We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For was one of the books to which people turned for inspiration and solace. Called “stunningly insightful” and “a book that will inspire hope” (by PW), this work is a clarion call to activism—spiritual ruminations with a progressive political edge, that offer a moment of care and solace.

Walker encourages readers to take faith in the fact that, despite our daunting predicaments, we are uniquely prepared to create positive change. Drawing on Walker’s spiritual grounding and her progressive political convictions, the book offers a cornucopia of the Pulitzer Prize winner’s writings and speeches on advocacy, struggle, and hope. Each chapter concludes with a recommended meditation to teach patience, compassion, and forgiveness.

Walker’s clear vision and calm meditative voice—truly “a light in darkness”—has struck a deep chord among a large and devoted readership.
