BAM: The People Speak
March 21, 2017 @ 7:30 PM—9:00 PM PDT$20
Some of today’s leading performers and artists give voice to those figures neglected by history. The People Speak builds on the work of historian Howard Zinn (1922–2010) to bring to life the extraordinary contribution of women, African-Americans, Native Americans, immigrants, and laborers who built the movements that made the United States what it is today: ending slavery and Jim Crow, protesting war and the genocide of Native Americans, creating unions and the eight-hour work day, advancing women’s rights and gay liberation, and struggling to right wrongs of the day.
By giving public expression, in the form of music and readings, to these rebels, dissenters, and visionaries from our past, The People Speak works to educate and inspire a new generation of people working for social justice.
