Description

Radicalism in America operates not through elections but through social movements. Think of the movements for labor rights, civil rights, women’s rights, Occupy Wall Street, or Black Lives Matter. University of Washington historian James Gregory creates a groundbreaking series of maps showing how these movements unfold over space and time. Through maps, charts, and other visualizations, he sheds light on the overlooked geography of American radicalism.
