Painting the Streets: Oakland Uprising in the Time of Rebellion expresses solidarity with the national and international protests against the police brutality/murder of Black people and systemic-institutional racism in the US with Oakland murals as a local reflection of this historic moment.

This oversized art book will impress this through an introduction by Alicia Garza; essays by Robin D. G, Kelley, Mizan Alkebulan and the Black Cultural Zone team, Greg Morozumi and Leslie Lopez, and Cat Brooks; an interview with Emory Douglas by Tongo Eisen-Martin, mural art (full list of participating artists coming soon!), photos by myriad photographers (including JJ Harris and Rohan DaCosta), and poetry expressing self-determination and the continuum of the Black liberation struggle by Umar Bin Hassan, from The Last Poets, Tureeda Mikell, Ayodele Nzinga (Oakland’s first Poet Laureate), James Cagney, Tongo Eisen-Martin, Arnoldo Garcia, Sizwe, Miasha Quint, Nia McAllister, and Amiri Baraka.

PURCHASE THE BOOK.

All proceeds from the book will go into a separate bank account overseen by 5 community members and proceeds will go toward visual arts programs in Oakland flatlands’ schools.
