Derrick Bell reflects on his protest and dismissal from his tenured posiion at Harvard rather than end his protest over the law school's continuing failure to grant tenture to any women of color. He offers an explanation of why people challenge authority when there is little hope of gain and after considerable risk. He argues that those who speak out are moved less by anger than by a deep sense of the fragility of self-worth.
