Author Event at the Potter's House in Adams Morgan
This Saturday the Potter’s House welcomes Scott Crow–community organizer, writer, strategist and speaker who advocates the philosophy and practices of anarchism for social, environmental, and economic aims–to present a talk about his book Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy and the Common Ground Collective. Crow uses his book as a foundation for a visual, fast moving and engaging presentation of stories to show what ordinary people can do to change their own worlds and create power from below without governments. The presentation seeks through a collection of stories to show how the philosophy of anarchism has shaped and changed modern political movements. Read more on facebook and online here.
