The New Labor Movement
Please join us for December’s Red Beans Roundtable on The New Labor Movement. This Red Beans Roundtable is part of the event series associated with our Fall exhibit, Sites of Resistance: An Exhibit Exploring Geographies + Histories of Social Change in New Orleans.
Red Beans Roundtables are casual conversations. Small Center provides red beans and rice from Café Reconcile and great panels of speakers who have unique insights into the big issues facing New Orleans. We ask our panelists and all participants to bring their questions, expertise, and appetites to Small Center so we can all learn and teach together.
Sites of Resistance works to reframe a dominant narrative that has obscured New Orleans’ historical role as a site of intense organizing, legal strategy, labor struggle, and civil rights activism. By elevating lineages and spaces of dissent and marginalized stories of inter-racial collaboration, as well as histories of direct conflict and challenge in contested spaces, we hope to reconnect our audience with the possibilities for making change that have been erased from our civic framework.
Curated by our Public Programs Manager, Sue Mobley, this exhibit and the associated event series are made possible through the generous support of the Surdna Foundation.
