Dr. Jessica Winegar was in Cairo’s Tahrir Square as Egyptian citizens gathered to start an uprising against decades of authoritarian oppression. She was witness as they engaged in countless acts of civic creativity, composing thousands of signs, poems, songs, music videos, jokes, graffiti, and murals. Dr. Winegar presents a look at the creative expressions of a revolution that shook the world.
