scott crow's Black Flags and Windmills 2nd ed—Out Now!
First edition named one of the “Top 5 Reads“ by The Progressive
Black Flags and Windmills—equal parts memoir, history, and organizing philosophy—vividly intertwines Common Ground cofounder scott crow’s experiences and ideas with Katrina’s reality, illustrating how people can build local grassroots power for collective liberation. It is a story of resisting indifference, rebuilding hope amid collapse, and struggling against the grain to create better worlds.
The expanded second edition includes up-to-date interviews and discussions between crow and some of today’s most articulate and influential activists and organizers on topics ranging from grassroots disaster relief efforts (both economic and environmental); dealing with infiltration, interrogation, and surveillance from the State; and a new photo section that vividly portrays scott’s experiences as an anarchist, activist, and movement organizer in today’s world.
“scott crow’s trenchant memoir of grassroots organizing is an important contribution to a history of movements that far too often goes untold.”
—Amy Goodman, host and executive producer of Democracy Now!
