From the front lines of the Spanish Civil War to the picket lines of the U.S. labor movement to the struggle for civil rights in Mississippi to work for human rights in Nicaragua, people know Abe Osheroff as an activist who threw himself into the fray with rare energy and enthusiasm through his 92 years. In this riveting documentary, Osheroff reflects on the meaning of that activism and the ideas that animated his actions in movements for social justice. A truly organic intellectual, Osheroff shares the wisdom built up over a lifetime of commitment to the "radical humanism" that defined his politics and philosophy.
