“Following the First Annual Howard Zinn Book Fair, please join us for the People’s Plenary– a celebration of the ways we find hope in difficult times. Our MC will be Nina Serrano, host of KPFA’s La Raza Chronicles. Keynote speakers are reknowned authors Robin DG Kelley and Rebecca Solnit, Performances by: Dregs 1 (Hip-Hop), La Collectiva (Popular Theater, Walidah Imarisha (Poet) and Aimmee Suzara (Poetry).
Robin DG Kelley will award our first annual People’s Plenary Award to the Marcus Bookstore community. Until their eviction this year, Marcus Books was the longest-open Black bookstore in the United States. The campaign to save it brought international attention to the displacement crisis in San Francisco as well as Black out-migration.
The People’s Plenary also includes readers inspired by the Voices of the People’s History of the United States, a Howard Zinn edited collection of speeches from organizers, visionaries and troublemakers from throughout history. Voices guests include Supervisor Eric Mar, USF Professor Rachel Brahinsky and Labor Organizer Maria Guillen, and activist Eric Talbert.” http://howardzinnbookfair.com/
