Black Flags and Windmills : Hope, Anarchy, and the Common Ground Collective
by Crow, Scott

Overview -
"When both levees and governments failed in New Orleans in the Fall of 2005, Scott Crow headed into the political storm, co-founding a relief effort called the Common Ground Collective. In the absence of local government, FEMA, and the Red Cross, this unusual volunteer organization, based on 'solidarity not charity, ' built medical clinics, set up food and water distribution, and created community gardens. They also resisted home demolitions, white militias, police brutality and FEMA incompetence side by side with the people of New Orleans. Crow's vivid memoir maps the intertwining of his radical experience and ideas with Katrina's reality, and community efforts to translate ideals into action. It is a story of resisting indifference, rebuilding hope amidst collapse, and struggling against the grain. Black Flags and Windmills invites and challenges all of us to learn from our histories, and dream of better worlds. And gives us some of the tools to do so."--Publisher's website.
