ROXANNE DUNBAR-ORTIZ & MAX ELBAUM: TWO FRESH LOOKS at 1960s MOVEMENTS Public Event / Live Webcast Tuesday, August 27th, 7 pm New College Theater, 777 Valencia Street, San Francisco, FREE Live Webcast: Click here (or copy and paste to your browser) to listen at 7 pm on Tues Aug 27th: http://63.89.115.2:8000/listen.pls (You will need RealPlayer. See below for free download.) Join the authors of two new books on 1960s movements: Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of "Outlaw Woman: A Memoir of the War Years, 1960-1975," and Max Elbaum, author of "Revolution in the Air: Sixties Radicals Turn to Lenin Mao and Che." ”Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz’s Outlaw Woman is a memoir of an extraordinary time in U.S. history, and it is one that doesn’t get bogged down in accusation, scandal, or idealistic reverie. The roots of contemporary feminism are here. The United States war in Vietnam is here. Native American and African American struggles are here. And other struggles that shaped generations of U.S. revolutionaries—Cuba, South Africa, Chile, Nicaragua.... Outlaw Woman is stark, unrelenting, honest, and evocative—of a time when a diverse subculture cared, a time that should make us proud.”—Margaret Randall, poet and memoirist. ”Max Elbaum has given us an incisive and critical history of the Other New Left - the radicals who brought class struggle and Third World liberation to the forefront, looked to the world for allies, and tried their best to work through the dynamics of race and class. If you still believe sixties radicalism was nothing more than youthful middle-class confusion or parochial identity politics, then open these pages and dig.”—Robin D.G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination. Free. Sponsored by New College Center for Education & Social Action. For information call: Jon Garfield: 415-437-3425.
