When we Fight, We Win! 1/27/16

I went to Reading Frenzy bookstore on 1/27/16 to view a presentation of the following work by inspiring activists and artists:

(Facebook Description)

"Join us in welcoming co-authors Greg Jobin-Leeds, Jorge Díaz and Deymirie Hernández of AgitArte to celebrate the release of WHEN WE FIGHT WE WIN: Twenty-First-Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World (The New Press, January 2016)!

Also joining us tonight:

Sharon Gary Smith!

Scot Nakagawa!

Walidah Imarisha!

In WHEN WE FIGHT, WE WIN! longtime social activist Greg Jobin-Leeds joins forces with AgitArte—a collective of innovative artists and organizers—to capture the stories, philosophies, tactics, and art of six of today’s most pressing movements: immigrant rights, the LGBTQ movement, the fight for quality public education, the prison justice movement, the struggle for economic power, and the environmental movement.

“Wonderful…inspiring…WHEN WE FIGHT, WE WIN! portrays vividly, and creatively, how alone we may seem small, but together we can become a powerful force to make a better world. A timely and impressive work.”

—Noam Chomsky, MIT professor of linguistics, emeritus

“As protests and demonstrations sprout across the land, young organizers and activists need to know why and how movements are sustained, and how they grow. That resource has arrived.”

—Mumia Abu Jamal, author and activist"


When We Fight, We Win!

Walidah Imarisha's book also looks amazing!
