Can Star Wars’ Rebel Alliance Be a Force of Resistance to Trump?
Stories of resistance to tyranny are a powerful Force for change (pun intended). Star Wars‘ mythos are more relevant than ever and we’ll be discussing fan communities using Star Wars to fight the Empire with Brian Young.
Brian works on the Imagine Better campaign to form a Rebel Alliance for a better Star Wars fandom.
Young has produced political documentaries for the Disinformation Company and written for Huffington Post about politics since 2007, but he’s also a big Star Wars fan. He writes for StarWars.com and Star Wars Insider Magazine and hosts one of the largest Star Wars podcasts: Full of Sith. He talks regularly about Star Wars and politics, but only occasionally at the same time, but not for lack of wanting to.
He is @swankmotron on twitter.
