CELEBRATE PEOPLE’S HISTORY—Poster Exhibit/Book Release Party/Artist Panel
AK Press Warehouse / 674-A 23rd Street, Oakland
Initiated by Josh MacPhee in 1998, the far-reaching "Celebrate People's History" poster project uses art to expose the hidden history of feminist organizing, indigenous uprisings, civil rights leaders, union struggles, LGBT activism and much more. For the first time ever, a complete set of these posters has been released in hardback by the Feminist Press:
We are also now celebrating the release of the brand-new AK Press title SIGNS OF CHANGE: SOCIAL MOVEMENT CULTURES, 1960s to NOW (edited by Dara Greenwald and Josh MacPhee)!:
Come out to AK Press for a book release party and poster exhibit, featuring guest speakers Lincoln Cushing [author of Revolucion: Cuban Poster Art (2003), co-author of Chinese Posters (2007), co-author of Agitate! Educate! Organize! – American Labor Posters (2009) and editor of Visions of Peace & Justice (2007)]; and Sabiha Basrai [graphic designer with the Design Action Collective, former-staff member of
Philadelphia’s Public Interest GRFX, and co-coordinator of the Alliance of South Asians Taking Action (ASATA)].
Both books will be available for sale. Admission is FREE, but donations will be accepted for Dara Greenwald (Josh MacPhee's partner and co-editor of SIGNS OF CHANGE), who is battling cancer.
