Initiated by Josh MacPhee in 1998, Celebrate People’s History uses posters to document the hidden history of feminist organizers, civil rights leaders, indigenous uprisings, union struggles, LGBT activism and much more. Bay Area-themed posters include tributes to the Alcatraz occupation, the International Hotel eviction, the transgender riot at Compton’s Cafeteria and Los Siete de la Raza, Mission youth framed for the murder of a cop.

A complete compilation has just been released - Celebrate People's History: the Poster Book of Resistance and Revolution with over 100 full-color posters. Edited by Josh MacPhee with a foreword by Rebecca Solnit, the book includes art from Jesus Barraza, Melanie Cervantes, Eric Drooker, Fernando Marti, Cristy Road, Jos Sances, Nicole Schulman, Swoon and many others.

To kick off the West Coast premiere of the book, a release party will be held with a poster exhibit, artists signing books and a panel featuring historian Lincoln Cushing http://www.docspopuli.org and artist Favianna Rodriguez http://www.favianna.com.

Admission is free, but donations go to MacPhee and his partner who is battling cancer.
