Forewords by Charlene Carruthers and Rebecca Solnit

 

Spanning nearly three thousand years of history—from the ancient Secession of the Plebs to the 2017 protests of the Confederate Soldiers Monument in Durham, from Sojourner Truth to Naoto Matsumura—these posters pay tribute to the long-standing human legacy of revolution, creative activism, and grassroots organizing. In this book, contemporary artists imagine and interpret often-overlooked events and figures in movements for racial justice, women's rights, queer liberation, labor organizing, and environmental conservation.

 

The second edition of Celebrate People's History includes almost one hundred new posters printed in duotone, presenting these essential moments as a visual tour through decades and across continents. Featured artists include Miriam Klein Stahl, Swoon, Cristy C. Road, Bishakh Som, Sabrina Jones, Nicole Schulman, Christopher Cardinale, Eric Drooker, Klutch, Carrie Moyer, Laura Whitehorn, Dan Berger, Ricardo Levins Morales, Chris Stain, and more.

 

“A book that will inspire, that will instill pride, and hopefully, also reinstate hope in all of us.” —Paperback Paris
