Silver Threads

Still walking, still waking

THERE ARE FORKS IN THE ROAD, BUT THEY ALL LEAD US HOME – TO THE FIGHT, TO THE BUILD.

Silver Threads: Still Walking, Still Waking is hosted by carla bergman and Eleanor Goldfield. They interview long term organizers and radicals about their watershed moments, what they have learned along the way, and how they maintain their hope on this path; dreaming and building emergent worlds for a present and future that is anchored in justice and freedom for all.

“If Humans of New York were a bold, anti-capitalist, grassroots celebration and contemplation with smatterings of art, self-care, tips and tactics…kind of like that” — Eleanor Goldfield 

SILVER THREADS LOOKS TO THE PAST TO PROVIDE CONTEXT FOR WHERE WE ARE NOW. EXAMINING THE PRESENT THROUGH THE LENS OF THE HEROES OF THE GENERATIONS PAST.

IF WE OPENED PEOPLE UP, WE’D FIND LANDSCAPES.

— AGNÈS VARDA
