I quite enjoyed this lengthy review of Kirylo's biography and analysis of Friere's thought. What was interesting was Rebecca Tarlau's perspective, as someone who initially read Friere in college and 'felt nothing', but who began to appreciate his work while engaged in her own community organization. "I asked the founder of the organization—Lourdes Luna—how they could possibly do all of those things. She pointed to a picture of a man with a long white beard, 'Paulo Freire,' she told me, 'We use Freire.' That certainly got my attention." It feels odd to me how something so abstractly defined could be of such practical use, but the proof is in the application.
