*From the forward to One Day in December by Alice Walker:*

“Nothing makes one more hopeful than discovering another human being to
admire. My wonder at the life of Celia Sánchez, a revolutionary Cuban woman
virtually unknown to Americans, has left me almost speechless. . . . In a
way it is through [her] selfless wisdom, her caring about future rebels she
saw coming to the place Cuba pioneered, that we most clearly see her.”
