Event Details

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT*

Twenty-first century social movements come to life through speeches, essays, and other documents of activism, protest, and social change in Voices of a People’s History of the United States in the 21st Century: Documents of Hope and Resistance

Join editors Anthony Arnove and Haley Pessin for a discussion around the speeches, essays, poems, and calls to action from Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, Indigenous struggles, immigrant rights activists, the environmental movement, disability justice organizers, and frontline workers during the global pandemic who spoke out against the life-threatening conditions of their labor.

Together, their words remind us that history is made not only by the rich and powerful, but by ordinary people taking collective action.

Inspired by the original Voices of a People’s History of the United States
