CELEBRATION OF THE LIVES OF DENNIS BRUTUS AND HOWARD ZINN
Sunday, April 18, 2010, 1-3pm
Clapp Hall, 4249 5th Ave. Across from Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Chapel
So many of us in Pittsburgh have had the great fortune to know, learn from and stand together with Dennis Brutus and Howard Zinn on many issues and in many struggles. Through their writings, films and examples they can still inspire young people to take action and help seasoned activists to keep on working for social justice and peace for the rest of our lives.
Please join us at this tribute to our wonderful teachers, friends and fellow activists.
The program will include speakers, who were their dear friends and collaborators, including Staughton Lynd, "The People Speak" co-producer Lisa Smith, Celeste Taylor, Paul LeBlanc and Marcus Rediker, Chair of the Pitt History Department. In addition, Howard and Dennis will be present through videos.
We'll have an open mike for people to speak out or share a favorite poem or excerpt.
Their books will be on sale. Spread the word widely and help make this an afternoon of celebration and inspiration. For more info 412-241-6087.
