All around the world, May 1 (International Workers’ Day) is a day of celebration honoring laborers and the revolutionary achievements that arose from working class experiences and struggles.
Join AWARE and Professor Anthony Newkirk from Philander Smith College as he discusses the rich history of the labor movements behind May Day, including Arkansas’s own unique revolutionary history.
This is taking place in the Anderson Institute on Race & Ethnicity meeting room, on the 2nd floor of Ottenheimer Library.
Food will be provided. This educational event is open to everyone (you don’t have to be UALR student or a member of AWARE). We’re also providing zines and info on additional reading material, resources, and orgs to reach out to!
“We are the class that does the work of the world and can revolutionize it. We can win true liberation.”
