Ridin’ With A Touch of Class

Brian Cook

Chris Hayes beat me to the punch, but The ITT List is now rolling deep with an official prize winner. Adam Doster bested more than 400 other writers-- some good ones too--to win the College Affordability Essay Contest. Adam's winning piece, "After College Ends, So Does Activism," can be read here. And, as coincidence would have it, Adam's piece on another relatively new and unsavory aspect of campus life is gracing our site's main page today. I believe it is also what the kids call a "must-read." Anyway, congratulations Adam. The honor is well deserved.

In this new book, longtime organizers and movement educators Mariame Kaba and Kelly Hayes examine the political lessons of the Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath, including the convergence of mass protest and mass formations of mutual aid. Let This Radicalize You answers the urgent question: What fuels and sustains activism and organizing when it feels like our worlds are collapsing?
