Dear students and faculty,
What do Matt Damon, Pink, Josh Brolin, Kerry Washington, John Legend, Marisa Tomei, and Bruce Springsteen have in common? Besides being celebrities, they all acted in the same movie! The School of Communication and Center for Social Media and the Department of Justice, Law and Society of the School of Public Affairs invite you to a screening of THE PEOPLE SPEAK.
Using dramatic and musical performances, The People Speakbrings alive the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday Americans. This documentary feature film gives voice to those who spoke up for social change throughout U.S. history, forging a nation from the bottom up with their insistence on equality and justice. Howard Zinn fondly called them troublemakers, dissenters, radicals, and picketers!
Now, dozens of artists have come together to create a visual testimony to the important history of the United States – A People’s History of the United States! Join us on March 1st 2011 at 5:30 PM in Wechsler Theatre at the MGC building.
Professor Chana Barron will open the event with introductory remarks on power and justice. Democracy is not a spectator sport!
