“First-rate and absolutely fascinating. This particular piece of American history has never been covered in such depth…everyone who is concerned with political change will learn a lot from this book.” —New York Times

 Detroit: I Do Mind Dying tracks the extraordinary development of the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement and the League of Revolutionary Black Workers, as they became two of the most vital political organizations of the 1960s and 1970s. 

A classic widely heralded as one the most important books on the black liberation movement and labor struggles in U.S. history, this updated edition includes the original Foreword by Manning Marable and a new Preface by the authors, Dan Georgakas and Marvin Surkin.

 “A beautiful, riveting account of one of the most imporant radical movements of our century—a movement led by black revolutionaries whose vision of emancipation for all is sorely needed today.” 
—Robin D. G. Kelley
