Direct action has a long and honored place in American history – from the revolution itself through abolitionists, suffragists, union organizers, civil rights advocates, feminist and gay rights activists, and on to today’s vibrant climate and social justice organizing.
Join author Luke Hauser for a profusely illustrated 25-minute journey through our past. We’ll focus especially on organizing from 1980 to the present, with sections on the 1980s anti-nuke movement and 2011’s Occupy actions.
Originally created around 2000, the show has been updated with a revised text and many new images. Co-created by Groundwork and Reclaiming Quarterly.
So make a big bowl of popcorn, pull up your beanbag chair, and get ready for a journey through our history!
