Join us for a discussion featuring editor Dao X. Tran, as well as readings by local changemakers Patrick Brown, Denise Dunbar, Reuben Jackson, and others.
In the great tradition of Howard Zinn, 101 Changemakers offers a “peoples’ history” version of the individuals who have shaped our country, specially designed for middle school students.
“For too many young people, history is just plain boring. History can seem like it is all about random dates and facts about powerful kings and important presidents making long-winded speeches. History should be exciting. It should be thrilling. It tells us the greatest stories ever told, and those stories contain lessons from the past that can help us create a better future. But we can only do that if we know who really made our history— and what exactly they did.”
Sponsored by Haymarket Books. Party and fundraiser to follow at Caribbean Corner, 12 N. Winooski Avenue.
