Love and Revolution: A Political Memoir is both memoir and people's history. It is a factually detailed and passionate account of events surrounding the Greensboro Massacre by a woman intimately connected with the events narrated. The author's husband, a pediatrician who abandoned medicine to work in a textile mill and organize low-wage workers, was among the slain.
Signe Waller was one of the organizers of the anti-Klan rally that turned into the Greensboro Massacre. Her husband, Dr. James Waller, and four close friends were killed in the massacre.
