When we Fight We Win! Part 2

GUEST: Greg Jobin-Leeds, Founder and Board chair of the Schott Foundation for Public Education, writer, high school and adult literacy teacher, and author with AgitArte, of the new book, When we Fight We Win! Twenty First Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World.

On yesterday’s program we aired part 1 of an in-depth conversation I had with author and activist Greg Jobin-Leeds about his new book, When we Fight We Win! Twenty First Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World. The book is co-authored by an artist’s activist collective named Agitarte. Rinku Sen, publisher of Colorlines.com, wrote the foreword to the book, and acclaimed education thinker and writer Antonia Dardar, wrote the afterword. The book is chock full of art and visual elements and is based on a series of interviews that Jobin-Leeds and his collaborators did with activists around the country that are engaged in the most important political movements of our day. Organized into specific chapters, “When we Fight, We Win” explores the movements for LGBT rights, public education, racial justice, immigrant rights, and economic justice.
