Add comment on:Arts, Culture and Resistance with Boots Riley and Davey D, San Francisco, 6/16/12: audio & photos
As a fundraiser for the Socialism 2012 conference in Chicago later this month, a talk entitled "Arts, Culture and Resistance" with Boots Riley and Davey D was held at the Redstone Building in San Francisco on June 16th. The discussion explored the intersection of social justice movements and the arts, their direct and indirect influences on each other, as well as the commercial forces working against radical art forms and movements.
