Lincoln Cushing - Agitate! Educate! Organize!
The North-East Branch is closed until 2 p.m. today, Monday, August 31 due to a water outage.
Classic American labor posters were created with the dual purpose of entertaining and informing.
Now, just in time for Labor Day, Lincoln Cushing, co-author of Agitate! Educate! Organize!, shares the history and rich graphic tradition of labor posters, in the process revealing much about the experiences of working people in the U.S.
Born in Cuba, Cushing is a librarian, archivist, author and lecturer. Among his books is Revolución!: Cuban Poster Art. Co-sponsored by the Institute for Labor Studies at UMKC.
