Join us for a public discussion with Sharon Smith, author of "Women and Socialism," to discuss the new edition of her book, "Subterranean Fire: A History of Working-Class Radicalism in the United States." This book brings to light a vital history, rarely, if ever, taught in school, of workers joining together to achieve gains previously not thought possible, from the weekend, to healthcare, to the right to even form a union. As we experience a resurgence in labor radicalism, with recent strike waves led by teachers, UC employees, hotel workers, and the Fight for 15, it is now more important than ever to learn about the fighting traditions of U.S. labor history and how we can apply its lessons to workers' struggles today.
Accessibility: The venue is wheelchair-accessible.
