Coming Events at Revolution Books

Events for Revolution Books stores in New York and Berkeley are listed here, including online events co-sponsored by both stores. Listed below are contact numbers for distributors of Revolution newspaper and followers of Bob Avakian in other cities.


The following online events are co-sponsored by Revolution Books New York and Revolution Books Berkeley:

March 22, 12 noon, through March 29, 11:30 pm

Special Video Tour of “Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration” by Dr. Nicole Fleetwood to benefit New York Revolution Books. Nicole Fleetwood and MoMA PS1 (the Museum of Modern Art’s contemporary art affiliate in Queens) are making available as a benefit for NY Revolution Books, Dr. Fleetwood’s video-guided tour of the art exhibition she curated (on view until April 4 at MoMA PS1): “Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration.” Dr. Fleetwood offers the video tour as a way for viewers to experience this wonderful exhibition during the pandemic and to support Revolution Books.

The exhibition presents powerful works created by 44 men and women living in the hellish conditions of the U.S. prison system—where two million+ people are caged, more than any other country in history... in the “land of the free.”

Donate at Eventbrite now, and on Monday, March 22, you will receive access to view Dr. Fleetwood’s 56-minute online video tour any time through March 29. Tickets start at $15, but give as generously as you can so that Revolution Books can be sustained and supported as an even more powerful and accessible resource to bring about a world where the chains are no more.

Dr. Nicole Fleetwood is a noted art scholar and Professor of American Studies and Art History at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.
