Jackson Rising Redux NYC Book Launch 1199 SEIU

International Peace Research Association

The NYC book launch of PM Press’ Jackson Rising Redux (2023), edited by Kali Akuno and Matt Meyer, was held at the main union hall of SEIU 1199 as a means of building new alliances across community-labor and geographic lines. Akuno and Meyer were joined by 1199 Vice President Shaywaal Amin, Cooperative Economics Alliance of NY co-director Maria Alex Garcia, 1199 senior advisor Bruce Richards, contributing author Sophie Gonick, and others. [Please note: After Brother Shaywaal’s brilliant reading/homage to Linton Kwesi Johnson, the video “rights itself” and the rest of the program is not “sideways viewing”!!]
