Biography: 
BC Craig began doing civil disobedience training at the age of 19 as part of the Movement for a New Society, a Philadelphia-based social justice organization that saw the training of activists, facilitators, and community organizers in the theory and practice of non-violent direct action as a mission that cut across movements. Using the writings of Gene Sharp, she spent the early 1980s training people to work against the Reagan agenda in a variety of causes, particularly anti-apartheid, Latin American solidarity, reproductive rights, and against nuclear weaponry. BC also organized and educated people on the issues of the economic and social costs of the military industrial complex. At the end of this period, she spent a year living and building housing in Nicaragua. When she returned to the states, she moved to the epicenter of the AIDS crisis, New York City, and began working with ACT UP, principally on direct action aimed at pressuring governments, city, state, and local, for treatment and services for PWAs.BC has been a teacher, teacher trainer, and professor of education for the past 25 years. She is currently the chief of academics of a high school in Harlem. She lives in Brooklyn and tries hard not to let that go to her head.
