Small Press Traffic is thrilled to partner with Critical Resistance in collaboration with authors and organizers Vanessa Huang and Tongo Eisen-Martin in bringing Huang's new work Quiet of Chorus to the Bay area. This book is based on Vanessa's years of working fighting against prison expansion in California and advocating on behalf of and organizing with women and gender nonconforming people in CA state prisons, and therefore a sort of history, a documentation of our legacies and a call to action in this current moment.
For the past 20 years, Critical Resistance (CR) has modeled that cultural practice and art are critical components of the fight for prison industrial complex abolition. The power of reclaiming culture taken from communities through centuries of colonization, genocide, and social and economic repression and the practices of creating are acts of resistance.
