Summary
A unique approach -- uses stories, lyrics, and poems to inspire and energize both new and experienced organizers. This book offers sage insights into aspects of community organizing not addressed by more conventional manuals. Written by; a veteran activist and musician with over forty-five years of experience working for progressive causes. This latest work by legendary activist, musician, and author Si Kahn is a different kind of community organizing book. As with other books, including some by Kahn himself, it does describe many of the practical tactics organizers use. But it's also about community organizing as a way of thinking and a way of life. For Kahn, it has been a way of life. He has been intimately involved in some of the most important progressive struggles of the past fifty years-the civil rights movement, the Harlan County miners' strike, the fight against prison privatization, and many more. In this unique and moving book he uses his experiences and those of the women and men he's worked with to illuminate critical aspects of organizing not touched upon by more conventional manuals. The stories Kahn tells are entertaining, funny, sad, and inspiring, but they're more than that-they're examples of creative community organizing in action. And like the secular rabbi he calls himself, Kahn lays out the specific lessons each tale is meant to teach-not only strategy and tactics, but advice on how to deal on a personal level with the demands of a difficult but vitally important job. Creative Community Organizing will help established organizers become more innovative and encourage them to question established principles and decide whether or not they still work. Aspiring organizers will discover a whole new way of looking at the world-they'll gain a sense of empowerment, understand that they can live and work in ways that help make the world more just and humane
