Left Bank Books
Left Bank Books presents Greg Jobin-Leeds and AgitArte's José Jorge Díaz and Deymirie Hernández for a multimedia evening—including performances and presentations by local and national activists and artists—and a discussion of their book, When We Fight, We Win!: Twenty-First-Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World.
In When We Fight, We Win!, longtime social activist Greg Jobin-Leeds joins forces with AgitArte—a collective of innovative artists and organizers—to capture the stories, philosophies, tactics, and art of six of today’s most pressing movements: immigrant rights, the LGBTQ movement, the fight for quality public education, the prison justice movement, the struggle for economic power, and the environmental movement.
AgitArte creates projects and practices of cultural solidarity with workers and marginalized communities in grassroots struggles. It supports the development of cultural workers committed to their art and the social and economic liberation of the people most involved in these struggles, especially those most impacted by the enduring inequalities in the United States and Puerto Rico.
“Wonderful…inspiring…When We Fight, We Win! portrays vividly, and creatively, how alone we may seem small, but together we can become a powerful force to make a better world." —Noam Chomsky
