Classic Works of Resistance Notecards
The books included on this bookshelf might be considered a syllabus for dissent, resistance, and protest, as well as a celebration of human rights, revolutionary thinking, courage, vision. The artist suggests that these cards be used to write to elected officials to tell them “how they can do better.” We consider the books a perfect reading list for young idealists.
