There will be two presentations! One Monday, April 15th at The Flying Brick at 7pm and the second Tuesday, April 16th at Richmond Salon III in the VCU Student Commons at 7pm.

The presentation based on crow’s book Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy and the Common Ground Collective (PM Press) is used as a foundation for a visual, fast moving and engaging presentation of stories to show what ordinary people can do to change their own worlds without governments. It is equal parts personal story, radical history and organizing philosophy based on crow’s experiences as a radical and anarchist organizer in the US. Some highlights covered are the connections and influences of past movements on current grassroots political organizing, the creation of the Common Ground Collective–the largest anarchist/horizontal inspired organization in modern US history formed after Hurricane Katrina in 2005–crow being labeled a ‘domestic terrorist’ by the US government and investigated for 10 years as and the effects of the ‘war on terrorism’ on political dissent and building power from below.
