“You Behold in Me a Horrid Example of Free Thought”

Brian Cook

Today is the 100th anniversary of Bloomsday, the day on which James Joyce's Ulysses takes place.

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?
