Since 1998, Celebrate People’s History posters have documented feminist organizers, indigenous uprisings, civil rights leaders, union struggles, LGBT activism and much more.
Bay Area history stands out with posters on Los Siete de la Raza, the 1969 Alcatraz occupation, the International Hotel, the 1966 transgender riot at Compton’s Cafeteria and much more. The Feminist Press has just released over 100 posters in hardback – Celebrate People’s History: the Poster Book of Resistance and Revolution, edited by Josh MacPhee with a foreword by Rebecca Solnit.
The book’s West Coast premiere includes a poster exhibit, book signing and artists panel with:
Poster historian Lincoln Cushing and Oakland-based artist Favianna Rodriguez who will talk about the rich legacy of Bay Area printmaking.
