Author Reading | Let the Record Show: The Story of ACT-UP (virtual)


In its complex and intersectional power, ACT UP transformed the lives of people with AIDS and the bigoted society that had abandoned them. ACT UP New York, a broad and unlikely coalition of activists from all races, genders, sexualities, and backgrounds, took on the AIDS crisis with an indefatigable, ingenious, and multifaceted attack on corporations, institutions, governments, and individuals who stood in the way of AIDS treatment for all. Based on more than 200 interviews with ACT UP members and rich with lessons for today's activists, Sarah Schulman's new book is a revelatory exploration of the coalition's inner workings, conflicts, achievements, and ultimate fracture. Let the Record Show charts how a group of desperate outcasts changed America forever, and in the process created a livable future for generations of people across the world.
