On March 2nd at 5pm I will be doing a book reading and signing at Chop Suey books in Carytown. If you haven’t picked up a copy of The South Is Still Rising yet, this is your opportunity.
I will be presenting on the Tent City Occupation of Monroe Park in 1998 by the General Strike Anarchist Collective.
The South is Still Rising: Contemporary Radical and Anarchist Movements in Richmond, Virginia from 1994-2004
The South is Still Rising explores the little known story of radical organizing in Richmond, Virginia in terms that Mo’s mom can understand. This story is contextualized in both within the history of Richmond and within the history of radical activism on a national and global scale.
The South is Still Rising reveals the things going on in the old capital of the Confederacy that are not played up in the media, and that many folks don’t get a chance to find out about. This is your window into a better understanding of what is actually going on in the South.
A new type of Southern Pride. A history that includes the resistance to racism, sexism, capitalism, and more.
Hope to see you there!
