Of Friends & Whirlwinds: Contemporary Radical Currents in the United StatesAdded to the calendar on Wednesday Jul 28th, 2010 3:09 PM
with the Team Colors Collective, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Chris Carlsson and other friends.
Explore contemporary radical currents with the Team Colors Collective and celebrate their recently released AK Press title, Uses of a Whirlwind: Movement, Movements, and Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States!
Uses of a Whirlwind, an edited collection of more then thirty contributors, is more than just a snapshot of current activity, organizing, ideas, and questions circulating among today’s radicals. It’s an opportunity for organizers, theorists, strategists, and movement elders to share and connect, to speak honestly of the challenges before us, to articulate new demands and possibilities in the ongoing war against state and capital.
A short reading and presentation will be followed by a discussion period, and we ask participants to bring stories and reflection of their own organizing to the event.
Copies of Uses of a Whirlwind will be available, as will the recent Team Colors companion volume titled Wind(s) from below: Radical Community Organizing to Make a Revolution Possible; visit the collections website at: http://www.whirlwinds.info.
