Socialist Night School: Harlan County, U.S.A
October 1, 2019
Join the East Bay Democratic Socialist of America for a screening of the groundbreaking 1976 strike film, Harlan County U.S.A.
In this academy-award-winning documentary, viewers are transported to the front lines of the class struggle as militant striking coal miners and their families in Southeastern Kentucky go to battle against their tyrannical bosses.
Even today, workers in Harlan County are fighting back. This summer, miners employed at the Blackjewel Mine camped out on the railroad tracks to demand their stolen wages. https://www.labornotes.org/2019/07/kentucky-miners-are-camped-out-railroad-tracks-blocking-coal-train-demanding-their-stolen
ABOUT SOCIALIST NIGHT SCHOOL
Socialist Night School is a rolling open course that provides opportunities for East Bay DSA members to ground their political work in the rich theoretical and historical traditions of the socialist left.
Classes are down-to-earth, inclusive spaces that give East Bay comrades a chance to grow their politics together, regardless of background knowledge or affiliation. You don't have to have been to a night school before and you don't have to RSVP to join us! You don't even have to be a member of East Bay DSA—everyone is welcome.
