Movement Makers

The turbulent '60s were a breeding ground for social activists: Vietnam War protesters, environmentalists, hippies promoting free love. Now, we’re witnessing a new generation involved in movements like Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter. Some are revisiting old battles including voting rights. Others have turned their attention to new causes. We hear more about them and an attempt to bring activists old and new together.

Movement Makers forum, Thursday, February 11, at the Levine Museum of the New South. More info.
