Politics and Prose is delighted to partner with the DC Public Library and the DC Public Library Foundation for an inspirational program with author De Nichols about her book Art of Protest: Creating, Discovering, and Activating Art for Your Revolution.


Art has accompanied social justice movements throughout time, bringing attention to important causes and imagining a vision for change. In this brightly colored, art-filled book, Nichols outlines the history of art in social justice movements worldwide, defines key artistic terms, and provides instruction and inspiration for making your own protest art. Nichols also shares her own experiences creating art for the Black Lives Matter movement and considers the future of the arts and social change.

The first 50 young people to register for the event and select the "Free Event Admission + Free Book" option at registration will receive a complimentary copy of the book for their home library (one book per family, please). Recipients of the complimentary copy will pick their book up in the Alma Thomas Teen Space at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G St. NW, Washington, DC, beginning Tuesday, April 5. Please note that complimentary book copies must be picked up by Saturday, April 16. These books are generously donated by the District of Columbia Public Library Foundation.

This program is presented in conjunction with D.C. Public Library’s Know Your Power contest, sponsored by Pepco. Teens are invited to submit an original work of writing, photography, illustration, or music that expresses their feelings on a social issue that matters to them. More information can be found at https://www.dclibrary.org/knowyourpower.
