you missed the first edition, you can now get the second edition.

The story of Robert Williams and Mabel Williams is an important
chapter in the history of African-American people. It is much more
than the history of a black man who fought against segregation
and apartheid in the South. It is the story of a man and a woman
united in struggle, it is the story of a family who fought together,
struggled together and stayed together, united and strong in the
face of racism and oppression. Their story traces their political
and ideological growth from being participants in the civil rights
struggle, and the human rights struggle inside the United States,
to being participants in the world struggle against imperialism
and exploitation. It is a story of human dignity, and courage in
the face of overwhelming odds. Their story is truly a story of
love and of commitment to the struggle of African Peoples and
oppressed peoples around the world.
—Assata Shakur, Black liberation fighter in exile

Robert F. Williams marches in the company of Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Kwame
Ture, Martin Luther King, Jr., Ella Baker and other leading voices of Black
liberation. He was one of the most important and controversial leaders of the
freedom movement. Yet his work, words, and profound influence are absent in
most historical accounts. With this CD, the Freedom Archives contributes to a
growing body of recent scholarship, telling the 
story of Robert Williams through
an exclusive interview with Mabel Williams, his widow, who was with him every
step of the way. The program traces their journey from NAACP leadership and
armed self-defense against the Klan in Monroe, North Carolina through exile and
internationalist solidarity in Cuba, China, 
Africa, and back to the United States. It
features rare speeches, interviews, and radio 
broadcasts of Radio Free Dixie, the
short wave radio series Robert and Mabel broadcast from Cuba.
