Voices of a People’s History: A Movement of Movements
July 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25 – $50
Voices of a People’s History celebrates diverse movement leaders by sharing their stories, in their own words. Leaders of today perform readings of notable speeches and essays from inspiring figures past and present. It’s a radically-empowering opportunity to hear the echoes of history in the modern day. Voices is the biggest night of the year for OPAL, and brings us closer together while strengthening our resolve to fight for racial, social and economic justice.
