Berkeley is home to over a century of radical organizing by South Asian Americans, from Ghadar Party freedom fighters to new generations of feminist and LGBTQ organizers. A new art show, “OUR NAME IS REBEL”: IMAGES OF BERKELEY'S RADICAL SOUTH ASIAN LEGACY opens on November 3, 2013, celebrating this rich history.

San Francisco Bay Area artists NISHA SEMBI and AMMAN DESAIbring this rich legacy to life through fine art pieces that include paintings, linocuts, prints, and an indoor mural installation. Their subjects cover a century of local South Asian American movements for justice, with a special focus on the Ghadar Party, which celebrates its 100-year anniversary in 2013.

The show celebrates 100 years of the Ghadar Party, and the 1st anniversary of the Berkeley South Asian Radical History Walking Tour, a monthly radical history event curated by ANIRVAN CHATTERJEE and BARNALI GHOSH.
