Waking the Sleeping Giant: The Making of a Political Revolution
“Waking the Sleeping Giant” chronicles the building of a 21st-century progressive movement in the United States. Against the backdrop of an extraordinary 2016 presidential race, five remarkable individuals wrestle with persistent racial injustice, growing economic inequality, and the corrupting influence of money in politics. From the campaign trail with Sen. Bernie Sanders to a local race in the failing economy of rural West Virginia, from a mass sit-in on the U.S. Capitol steps to racially charged police-commission hearings in Los Angeles, “Waking the Sleeping Giant” makes sense of the current moment in American politics, probing the country’s widespread discontent.
