Fish-Ins & Black/native Solidarity In The 1960s - Mariame Kaba

Here, Mariame Kaba has teamed up with the illustrator Jon Bailiff, and combed her own archives and the materials of others to tell a fascinating story of Black and Native solidarity. In the introduction she writes:

"A few years ago, I came across a brief description of Dick and Lillian Gregory’s fish-in protests in solidarity with Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest. I was intrigued, so I started researching and also collecting specific items related to their involvement in these protests."

This publication offers a brief description of the fish-ins as a way to highlight a chapter in history that may be less well-known to modern audiences. The Gregorys’ involvement in the fish-ins is a concrete example of Black-Native solidarity. Perhaps you, like me, had never heard about the protests. I believe that knowing this history reminds us that we can in fact work for justice across differences. It’s been done and we can/should do so today."
