Che on My Mind is an impressionistic look at the life, death, and legacy of Che Guevara by the renowned feminist poet and activist Margaret Randall.

Recalling an era and this figure, she writes, "I am old enough to remember the world in which [Che] lived.

I was part of that world, and it remains a part of me." Randall participated in the Mexican student movement of 1968 and eventually was forced to leave the country.

She arrived in Cuba in 1969, less than two years after Che's death, and lived there until 1980.

She became friends with several of Che's family members, friends, and compatriots.

In Che on My Mind she reflects on his relationships with his family and fellow insurgents, including Fidel Castro.

She is deeply admiring of Che's integrity and charisma and frank about what she sees as his strategic errors.

Randall concludes by reflecting on the inspiration and lessons that Che's struggles might offer early twenty-first-century social justice activists and freedom fighters.
