After a lot of hand-wringing (much of it from yours truly) about the protests, it seems like they went off fantastically. My parents were there and said they had a great time, everyone was polite and respectful of the cops, but energized and fired up.

There was so much hype about arrests and violence that when it didn't happen, it was news.

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?
