Color Me Resisting, 2016
In 2016, For the People Artists Collective (FTP) collaborated with the Chicago Childcare Collective (ChiChiCo) again to create Color Me Resisting, a radical coloring book. We selected around 20 campaigns, actions, and efforts that spanned 11 months in 2016. From numerous "train-takeovers" to locking down major streets, from Freedom Square to RonnieMan Park, Sandra Bland's family's commitment to keep her spirit alive to the fight to get Bresha out of jail - these pages tell stories of loss, love, collective healing & resistance.
This coloring book is also out of print, with over 700 copies sold and hundreds donated to local youth-centered grassroots organizations, we are offering 5 free pages for download to share with the younger people in your lives, or perhaps, yourself!
