DIESEL, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes Josh Marshall to the store to discuss and sign, From Head Shops to Whole FoodsThe Rise and Fall of Activist Entrepreneurs, on Wednesday, August 16th, at 7:00pm. From Head Shops to Whole Foods tells the forgotten story of activists who established small businesses to advance the goals of political transformation and cultural liberation.
