Media Workers for Social Change, 2nd Edition

Peter Maiden writes: “I did not approach these stories as an academic, or as an investigative journalist, although I might have. I wrote and photographed as one media worker among other media workers.” In an eye-opening look at the creative lives of twelve San Francisco Bay Area media pioneers Maiden documents the existence of a progressive social consciousness that was “hidden in plain sight” during years when no one thought there was a movement. Written incisively and illustrated with well-crafted photographs, this volume can be an inspiration to anyone seeking to start or strengthen media work outside the corporate mainstream. The second edition features the same media makers, but is thoroughly revised with further interviews and research. There are also new photos and a great new graphic from Favianna Rodriguez.
