Uses of a Whirlwind Book Party @ AK Press

By charles | August 3, 2010



Of Friends & Whirlwinds: Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States: with the Team Colors Collective, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Chris Carlsson, and other friends.

Saturday August 07
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Saturday, August 7th, 7pm
AK Press Warehouse – 674 A 23rd St. Oakland, CA

Explore contemporary radical currents with the Team Colors Collective and celebrate their recently released AK Press title, Uses of a Whirlwind: Movement, Movements, and Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States!

Uses of a Whirlwind, an edited collection of more then thirty contributors, is more than just a snapshot of current activity, organizing, ideas, and questions circulating among today’s radicals. It’s an opportunity for organizers, theorists, strategists, and movement elders to share and connect, to speak honestly of the challenges before us, to articulate new demands and possibilities in the ongoing war against state and capital.

A short reading and presentation will be followed by a discussion period, and we ask participants to bring stories and reflection of their own organizing to the event.

Copies of Uses of a Whirlwind will be available, as will the recent Team Colors companion volume titled Wind(s) from Below: Radical Community Organizing to Make a Revolution Possible; visit the collections website at:

    For a preview of what’s in store for you lucky folks out in the Bay Area, check out the audio from Craig Hughes’s talk on Uses of a Whirlwind a couple of weeks ago at Red Emma’s:

    Also, Team Colors will present the book at Modern Times Books in SF on Sunday, August 8, at 3PM. Two chances to see your favorite geographically-dispersed militant research collective in the Bay!
