Join us for a talk and celebration of graphic designer Bonnie Siegler as she releases Signs of Resistance. The panel will feature Erin Vilardi (Founder/CEO of VoteRunLead), Amol Sinha (Executive Director of the ACLU New Jersey), and author Bonnie Siegler.
SIGNS OF RESISTANCE: A Visual History of Protest in America, Siegler combines her two passions to showcase a collection of visual expressions of resistance throughout American history. In hundreds of iconic, smart, angry, clever, unforgettable images, SIGNS OF RESISTANCE chronicles what truly makes America great: citizens unafraid of speaking truth to power. Many of these images throughout our history are as relevant today as they were then.
Each chapter of SIGNS OF RESISTANCE covers a different movement in history— from the American Revolution, Women’s Suffrage, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Vietnam War to Black Lives Matter, the actions of our forty-fifth president, and the Women’s March. SIGNS OF RESISTANCE includes 240 culturally significant images from some of the biggest grass-roots movements of our time. It offers an inspiring, optimistic, and visually galvanizing history lesson about the power people have when they take to the streets and stand up for what’s right.
The panel will feature Erin Vilardi, Amol Sina, and Bonnie Siegler.
