Creative Community Organizing: A Guide for Rabble-Rousers, Activists & Quiet Lovers of Justice by Si Kahn. 

If you yearn to help make the world a better place but wonder how to do it, look no further. In this unique book, legendary organizer and musician Si Kahn regales us with entertaining, funny, sad, dramatic, and inspiring tales of his work in some of the most important progressive struggles of the past fifty years—the Southern civil rights movement, the Harlan County coal miners’ strike, the fights to abolish prison privatization and immigrant family detention. Si addresses not just strategies and tactics but how creative community organizing can prod us to learn new skills, encourage us to take risks, and transform us into practical visionaries for justice.

Si Kahn, a prominent folk singer, first settled in Appalachia on a small Fannin County, Georgia farm up a holler.
