Stephanie McMillan, the cartoonist behind “Minimum Security” and “Code Green,” presents a basic, easy-to-understand introduction to what capitalism is, how it works, and why it’s evil. This talk is accompanied by cartoons and illustrations. Stephanie McMillan is an organizer with the anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist group One Struggle.
Stephanie McMillan, a long-time activist, cartoonist, and the organizer behind the anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist group One Struggle, has waited her entire life for the American people to rise up. Sparked by uprisings around the world, a new movement bursts onto the national scene against a system that denies the people a decent life and puts the planet at risk. Her book The Beginning of the American Fall chronicles the first several months of the fragile and contradictory movement with delightful drawings, interviews, dialogue, description, and insightful reflections. It situates detailed personal experiences and representative narratives within the broad context of a truly unique and historical global conjuncture. This book will stand as a record of the emerging movement in accessible comics form. Her other cartoons include “Code Green” and “Minimum Security”, which will be published in its entirety this September.
Stephanie McMillan will be available for question and answer as well as book signings. To learn more about the event, visit the Bluestockings Bookstore event page. The even has a $5 suggested donation at the door.
