Advance praise for the book from Angela Davis:

“Oakland is a city of artists, and of people who appreciate the vital role of art in accelerating social change. Painting the Streets is an enduring reminder that we caught sight of the future in the murals and art that radically transformed Oakland during the protests in the summer of 2020.”

– Angela Y. Davis, Distinguished Professor Emerita History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies University of California, Santa Cruz

About the book: Painting the Streets: Oakland Uprising in the Time of Rebellion expresses solidarity with the national and international protests against the police brutality/murder of Black people and systemic-institutional racism in the US with Oakland murals as a local reflection of this historic moment.
