When We Fight We Win

By: Greg Jobin-Leeds & AgitArte

When We Fight We Win is as visually stunning as it is inspirational. Social activist
Greg Jobin-Leeds captures insight and reflection from the leaders
of the most influential movements in the past decade. With help from the AgitArte
collective, these journeys to make social change
are represented beautifully through accompanying art.

This book documents the stories, strategies, philosophies and art from
movements such as #BlackLivesMatter, Occupy Wall Street, End the New Jim Crow
and many more. There are common threads that weave throughout the
full-color pages. The narratives shed light on the successes and obstacles
transformative change-makers face when organizing and raising awareness.
This book is an excellent resource for teachers and the art curation in this book
is outstanding for using in inquiry based discussions with students at any age.
Element 6 - Taking Social Action

This book is all about social movements and the people behind them.
I didn’t plan on this book being so excellent and had no idea that it had
its very own website when I purchased it. Please go to the link below to buy the book!
100 percent of the proceeds go back into cultural projects. Additionally, there is a
wealth of resources and a study guide included on the site.
