SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2014

6:00-8:30 PM

Westside Peace Center

Suite 101-102, press #22 at door to get into building

Culver City (LA area)

 

SPEAKERS:

Kevin Anderson, author of “Marx at the Margins: On Ethnicity, Nationalism, and Non-Western Societies”

Robert Paul “Gabe” Gabrielsky, longtime socialist and labor activist

 

This meeting will focus on two pages in U.S radical history, each with great relevance for today:  (1) In light of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Kevin Anderson will take up Marx’s Civil War writings in terms of race, class, democracy, and revolution. (2) Gabe Gabrielsky will focus on Eugene Debs and the Socialist Party, one of the high points of labor and socialist organization in U.S. history.

 

Background readings for those interested:

Kevin suggests Ch. 3 of “Marx at the Margins” or his shorter essay on Marx and the Civil War, or his critique of Spielberg’s “Lincoln.”

Gabe suggests the Wikipedia entries for Debs and the Socialist Party of America.
