“This book by Elisa Camahort Page, Carolyn Gerin, and Jamia Wilson dubs itself a “tactical field guide to understanding, using, and defending the rights we have and to fighting for the justice that we still need to achieve.”
The fury and rage here is in motion, fueling rallies and protests, giving rise to specific causes of liberation. This is a new-to-organizing handbook, though even veteran activists will appreciate its detailed and efficient assessments about how to tackle seemingly insurmountable, complex and complicated issues.
In a world overrun with think pieces published hours after the most recent breakdown of democracy, Road Map is a lucid, refreshing, and concise guide that astutely demonstrates how to transform rage into productive, long-term resistance.”
A quick two minute interview where in Elisa talks about who she’d like to interview, who she’d like to have 5 minutes alone with, and who she’d like to have dinner with. All different answers ensue. She also talks about #RoadMap4Revs, slacktivism, and the many dimensions of diversity.

With the highly anticipated nationwide midterm elections just around the corner, the University of Baltimore will host the authors of Road Map for Revolutionaries, a new guidebook featuring "practical tactics for navigating and protecting one's personal democracy in a gridlocked, heavily surveilled, and politically volatile country," on Tuesday, Oct. 9, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the third-floor gathering space in the Bogomolny Library, 1420 Maryland Ave. The event is free and open to the public; an online R.S.V.P. is requested. Attendance details are listed below.
Stephanie Gibson, professor in the Klein Family School of Communications Design and the moderator for the Oct. 9 event, said she invited Road Map's authors to campus to encourage a discussion about the "full-time job" of being a citizen in a participatory democracy.
"The most important thing to do in the current political climate environment is vote. Vote like your life depends on it," Prof. Gibson said. "But voting isn't the only action we can take. There are so many more ways to be an effective voice."
Those who wish to attend this event are asked to fill out an online R.S.V.P. , for the purpose of providing updates about the talk. Copies of the book will be available for sale and authors' signing.
