Join Amy Goodman and youth activists Brea Baker, Ramon Contreras, and Hebh Jamal to discuss the movements of our time—from the fight for tougher gun control laws to the struggle for immigrant rights—and how they draw on a long history of protest. This event celebrates the Museum of the City of New York’s publication of Activist New York: A History of People, Protest, and Politics (NYU Press, 2018) and a new case study on the movement against the Vietnam War in the Activist New York exhibition. Museum curator and author of the Activist New York book, Steven Jaffe, will introduce the program.

Reception to follow.

This program accompanies the museum’s ongoing exhibition Activist New York , the inaugural exhibition in The Puffin Foundation Gallery, which is dedicated to the ways in which ordinary New Yorkers have exercised their power to shape the city’s and the nation’s future.
