Finally Got the News! is an exhibition at the Interference Archive that uncovers the hidden legacy of the radical left of the 1970s, a decade when vibrant social movements challenged racism, imperialism, patriarchy and capitalism itself. These diverse movements used printed materials as organizing tools in every political activity, creating a sprawling and remarkable array of printing styles, techniques, and formats. Through the lens of printed materials we can see the real nuts and bolts of revolutionary organizing in an era when thousands of young revolutionaries were attempting to put their beliefs into practice in workplaces and neighborhoods across the U.S.
We designed a book alongside the exhibition, which provides 256 full-color pages of over 200 full-color reproductions accompanied by text, accompanied by essays from movement participants.
