Join Char Miller at the Twig Book Shop where he will be talking about and signing WEST SIDE RISING: How San Antonio's 1921 Flood Devastated a City and Sparked a Latino Environmental Justice Movement. West Side Rising is the first book focused squarely on San Antonio’s enduring relationship to floods, which have had severe consequences for its communities of color in particular. Examining environmental, social, and political histories, Char Miller demonstrates that disasters can expose systems of racism, injustice, and erasure and, over time, can impel activists to dismantle these inequities. He draws clear lines between the environmental injustices embedded in San Antonio’s long history and the emergence of grassroots organizations that combated the devastating impact floods could have on the West Side. Free and open to the public. More information at thetwig.com.
