For One Day of Freedom

The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.

– Ida B. Wells –

For One Day of Freedom

“”Even if life stops, love goes on.” This quote of Bishop Steven Charleston’s has never been more
real to me than this year, which has seen the posthumous publication by ANTIBOOKCLUB of my
husband Blyden B. Jackson Jr’s final novel, ‘For One Day of Freedom,’ completed before his death
in April of 2012. The publication of this novel, which was passed over by mainstream publishers
when we tried unsuccessfully to have it published while Blyden was still alive, is a testament to
his commitment to the act and power of storytelling. And to paraphrase the publisher, Gabriel Levinson, it also speaks to mine and Blyden’s love “and to the endurance of goodwill over hate”. In the thirty-eight years that we spent together I came to know of Blyden’s deep
commitment to civil rights for all people and of his work in the Civil Rights movement of the
1960’s.” Jane Jackson shares a powerful glimpse into her husband’s remarkable novel, that powerfully portrays the injustices of slavery and holds deep relevance for our times. { read more }
