Howard Zinn Book Fair 2019
Sunday December 8th, 2019
City College of San Francisco, Mission Campus
1125 Valencia Street
We are pleased to announce that the 6th Annual Howard Zinn Book Fair will take place on December 8, 2019 at CCSF Mission Campus. The theme of this year’s book fair is “Strike! Discovering Our Power.” We selected this theme to celebrate the ways in which everyday people discover their ability to work together. Inspired by the wave of strikes across the United States in the past year, the massive General Strikes in India, and the recent uprisings in Algeria and Sudan, we expand the idea of the strike to include all of the ways people can take collective action to preserve their homes, protect life on earth, respect indigeneity, shut down the machinery that produces racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and inequality, and build movements that are strong enough to last. The Strike! is not only about withdrawing our labor, but about redirecting it to create a better world.
The Howard Zinn Book Fair will host dozens of 90 min session slots for workshops, readings, panels and performances. We will be accepting session proposals until July 15th. We will prioritize sessions that speak to the theme, but, as always, welcome all proposals that reflect Howard Zinn’s legacy of “a people’s history”.
Expand the Discussion
The Howard Zinn Book Fair is a unique chance to bring a diverse set of voices together in constructive dialogue. Along these lines we encourage presenters to invite other authors or activists to join their sessions in order to broaden discussions and foster constructive debate.
