Celebrate People’s History: The Poster Book of Resistance and Revolution

Time Periods: All US History
Themes: Art & Music, Organizing

Since 1998, Josh MacPhee has commissioned and produced over one hundred posters by over eighty artists that pay tribute to revolution, racial justice, women’s rights, queer liberation, labor struggles, and creative activism and organizing. Celebrate People’s History presents these essential moments—acts of resistance and great events in an often hidden history of human and civil rights struggles—as a visual tour through decades and across continents, from the perspective of some of the most interesting and socially engaged artists working today. Includes Cristy Road, Swoon, Nicole Schulman, Christopher Cardinale, Sabrina Jones, Eric Drooker, Klutch, Carrie Moyer, Laura Whitehorn, Dan Berger, Ricardo Levins Morales, Chris Stain, and more. (Publisher’s description.)

Foreword by Rebecca Solnit, the author of many books including A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities that Arise in Disaster.
