“Organize Your Own: The Politics and Poetics of Self-Determination Movements” is a touring exhibition and event series that started in Philadelphia and Chicago in 2016. The project will tour throughout this year with a stop at Cuesta College's Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery to kick off the 2018 year. The exhibit features new work by contemporary artists and poets that responds to the history of the mandate from the Black Power movement to “organize your own” community against racism.
