Family Life
In Part Three of An Ongoing Cost To Be Free we find Russell Maroon Shoatz at a crossroads in his life. As he and his wife struggles to take care of the family they’ve started, Russell starts to look at the plight of Black people in his community and in America and begins to put it into a historical and political context. His days as a youth on the streets of Philadelphia still have a hold on him and he feels a responsibility towards his community. An internal struggle between the life he’s built and a desire to be a catalyst for radical change begins to shift the focus of his life. Within that struggle Russell falls in love with another woman, Sister Love. They share a common political philosophy and Russell has three children with her. The two women in his life are symbolic to the internal war that rages between wanting a normal family life and stepping into the life of militant.
