Radical Village, May 8, 3PM
05/08/2022 03:00 PM - 04:30 PM ET
The historic Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School has served as a haven for political dissidents and cultivated prominent social justice activists for an entire century. Join us for a walk around Greenwich Village as we explore the lives of the radical playwrights, lawyers, musicians, educators, and artists who have called the school home. Among the sites we will visit: our city’s first integrated club where Billie Holiday debuted the anti-lynching anthem “Strange Fruit,” the Weather Underground townhouse that a bomb ripped apart, the prison where the FBI detained Angela Davis upon her capture, the home of Pete Seeger and other artists targeted by the House Un-American Activities Committee, and more. Together we will reflect upon this community’s enduring legacy and impact on social movements of today.Event Registration is closed.
