Grace Carlson & The Work of Class and Gender: An Early Exploration
July 7, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The East Side Freedom Library invites you to a presentation by Donna Harverty-Stacke, Associate Professor of History, Hunter College. The author of the recently published and widely praised study, Trotskyists on Trial: Free Speech and Political Persecution Since the Age of FDR, Donna has been digging into the complex life history of Grace Carlson, the only woman among local labor activists sentenced to prison under the Smith Act during WWII. Donna will share with us what she has discovered so far and what she thinks Grace Carlson’s story tells us about the ways that gender and class intersected in labor activism.
