Please come to the Peace Cabaret at Carmody at 7:30 on Oct. 27– suggested donation a ten-spot. This is meant to benefit Sue Sojourner, who is struggling to assemble the photos, the ephemera, the words, the memories, of her role and those of her friends in the fight for civil rights in the south in the sixties. Hers may be the real “greatest generation”–those who threw their lives into jeopardy for some idea of justice that wasn’t popular at the time.
The entertainment will surprise you–political talk that isn’t boring. I’ve assembled sections of speeches from the likes of Stokely Carmichael, Fanny Lou Hamer, MLK, and more that carry the flavor of those days’ immediacy, the sense that something real could change. They’ll be read by Duluth citizens: David Comer, Portia Johnson, Bart Sutter, Rabbi Amy Bernstein and more.
And hey–for fun, Perfectini plays lounge jazz– another 60s artifact.
come on down and let’s think and feel together about what political change can be.
