An open-source and self-paced instructional series covering a range of radical theory, participatory vision, & strategy for activists. The primary source is a series of interactive seminar lectures given by Michael Albert at the Z Media Institute in 1995, as well as many supporting documents and links for further and parallel exploration. 

This click-through program remains in its original format. While cutting edge at the time of its creation, it now gives a distinctly retro experience which is not always easy to navigate. We are working to update this timeless content to provide a more seamless experience.

Until then, just jump in and experience the birth of online learning!
