Abstract:

"The North Star is one of the greatest symbols for justice stemming from the history of our people. ̀The North Star' was an expression that meant heading toward freedom as slaves tried to escape northward. It has become a symbol in my life of both the goal and the guiding light on the road ahead."--Peter Camejo, from North Star.

This is the autobiography of a remarkable life. As the New York Times wrote, "A first generation Venezuelan-American ... Mr. Camejo [spoke] out against the Vietnam War and for the rights of migrant workers. He marched in Selma, Alabama, with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King." As a veteran of the civil rights, antiwar, environmental, and socialist movements, Camejo's was an impassioned voice of discontent. His many campaigns for public office provided a unique platform for challenging the priorities of a system that prizes profits above all else.

Camejo's memoir describes a life devoted to the fight for a better world. His story traverses the Americas, bringing readers inside many of the defining movements of the last half century. The resulting book serves both as a record of Camejo's uncompromising commitment to justice and equality and as a guide for the struggles to come.

"Peter was a friend, colleague, and politically courageous champion of the downtrodden and mistreated of the entire Western hemisphere."--Ralph Nader --Book Jacket.
