Description


"Playing Bigger Than You Are: A Life in Organizing" is Stewart Acuff's story of his 30-year life in organizing. Be it organizing citizens for stop signs at a busy intersection in Memphis, successfully working to unionize the Atlanta Olympics, or guiding the nationwide organizing program of the AFL-CIO, we get a rare insight into the day-to-day struggles of an organizer.

We meet a man who risked his life as a UN observer during elections in Sierra Leone, has spent time in jail, marched in the WTO "Battle of Seattle," and helped sidetrack Newt Gingrich during the 'Contract with America' days. In his foreword, Senator Bernie Sanders says "Stewart Acuff is one of the best when it comes to helping Americans organize to get things done."
