As the American calendar rolls around to another historically-dubious holiday, it's comforting to know you can celebrate the righteous kind of history year-round with People's History posters from Just Seeds. At four bucks a pop, you can afford to load up on your favorite activists, or give them as presents to remind folks of the heroes that History-with-a-capital-H (not to mention present-day media) tends to conveniently forget. Here are just some of the offerings...
The women-anarchist militias of the Spanish Revolution of 1936 by Cristy Road
Resistance during the 2006 teachers' strike in Oaxaca by Tim Simons and Barucha Calamity Peller
The Korean Peasants League, indigenous farmers who stood up to the WTO by Nicole Schulman
And you can buy the People's History series as postcard packs too! Here's one of Sylvia Ray Rivera, NYC drag queen and activist in the Gay Liberation Front, Black Panthers, and Young Lions, and a Stonewall rioter (art by John Gerken).
Just Seeds is an artist cooperative whose artists are scattered throughout the United States, and have plenty of other cool artwork besides the People's History series! Check out the selection at JustSeeds.org.
