Thread Makes Blanket presents a reading and release event

This event is a part of Organize Your Own: the Politics and Poetics of Self-Determination Movements, on view at the Averill and Bernard Leviton Gallery March 3-April 9, 2016. This exhibition features new work by contemporary artists and poets responding to archival materials related to the history of white people organizing their own working-class white neighborhoods in Philadelphia (the October 4th Organization) and Chicago (the Young Patriots Organization) in keeping with the mandate from the Black Power movement to “organize your own” community against racism.
