This session looks at two perennial forms of subtle resistance in our culture: songs and posters. James Sullivan’s Which Side Are You On? examines twentieth-century American history through the lens of protest songs from each of its major social movements, such as anti-war, civil rights, women’s rights, worker’s rights, gay rights, and environmentalism. In Signs of Resistance, graphic designer Bonnie Siegler turns her eye to images of protest, beginning with the Revolutionary War all the way to the Trump and Black Lives Matter era. Join us for a lively musical and visual session about the history of protest in songs and signs moderated by Callie Crossley, BBF board member and host of Under the Radar on WGBH radio.
