For decades, New York City radicals—union leaders, anarchists, socialists—headed to Union Square to rally, listen, learn, and vigorously debate. For this event the Museum will create its own public square, calling upon authors and professors Morris Dickstein, Tony Michels and Lara Vapnek to discuss the history and culture of Union Square. Tenement Actors will perform the speeches of notable early 20th century figures including anarchist leader Alexander Berkman and labor leader and founding member of the American Civil Liberties Union, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn.
