Garrett Felber, Study and Struggle


What can the life of Martin Sostre, a former political prisoner and the progenitor of Black anarchism, tell us about our own fight against fascism? Sostre's biographer - an organizer, educator, and library worker - considers the lessons we can learn about prisons, the state, and revolutionary struggle today. Please join us for a screening of Frame-Up! (1974, 30 minutes) and post-screening conversation with Garrett Felber, PhD, director of the Study and Struggle project.

Garrett Felber is an educator, writer, and organizer. He is a co-founder of the abolitionist collective, Study and Struggle, and is currently writing a biography of revolutionary anarchist Martin Sostre and building a radical mobile library, the Free Society People's Library, in Portland, Oregon.
