For Love and Liberty

For Love and Liberty

by Tom Manning

Tom Manning is a freedom fighter, political prisoner and prolific artist. His paintings are stories that jump off the page, revealing the outlook of people who struggle for liberation around the world. This book of over 80 full-color paintings were made between 1996 and 2005.


“There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard,”

reads Psalm 19:3 and the gravestone of Black freedom fighters

Jonathan and George Jackson. Voice, through its many forms,

articulates vision. Call it subversive art, liberating art, art that

challenges the one-dimensional, Tom’s art is a voice among the

dispossessed that transcends concrete and razor wire with an affirmation

of life.

The paintings of Tom Manning and American Indian Movement

activist Leonard Peltier; the creative work of Puerto Rican

Independista Oscar Lopez Rivera; the poetry of anti-imperialist

Marilyn Buck, which lives on, and the Earth defender poems of

Marie Mason; the spoken word of Mumia Abu-Jamal and Mutulu

Shakur. They are the voices of our political prisoners, principled

and honorable men and women who communicate from isolation

and suffering.

We must not let their voices be suppressed. They need be heard

and celebrated by freedom loving people everywhere.
