Phil Ochs Song Night
Saturday, October 23, 2010
7:00 pm
Sonny Ochs, sister of the song-writer Phil Ochs, brings together a group of musicians,
including Magpie, David Roth, John Flynn, Greg Greenway, Kim and Reggie Harris, 
Pat Wictor and special guest, First Parish minister Fred Small, to perform her brother's
songs and keep his music alive. Phil Ochs' political songs helped shape the social
consciousness of the protest movements of the 1960s, and they continue to resonate
today. Join us to experience the power of music to move us and change the world.

Howard Zinn and the Freedom to Write

Sunday, October 3, 2010
2:00 pm
The late historian Howard Zinn left a legacy of anti -establishment books, from 
the landmark The
People's History of the United States to his final work, Three
Plays: the Political Theater of Howard Zinn. He gave voice, credit,
and visibility to workingmen, unionists, women, dissidents-- those most often denied
their own voice in history, in
their communities, in their own lives.

Another facet of Zinn's "bottom-up" approach was his
lifelong support for young writers and small presses. In 1956, he taught
at Spellman College, a historically black college in Atlanta, Georgia.
Among his students were Alice Walker, the future novelist, and Marian
Wright Edelman, future leader of the Children Defense Fund; both
credited him as their most influential college teacher.

Join Helene Atwan of Beacon Press, poet Martin Espada of the University of Massachusetts,
Amherst, Marc Favreau of The New Press, and sportswriter David Zirin as they remember
the ways that Howard Zinn influenced their reading and writing lives.

This program is co-sponsored by PEN-New England and Amnesty International.

Renewing American              Democracy:  Change Congress
Wednesday, October 13, 2010
Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig argues that American representative democracy
is broken and that only a concerted effort to change the way that Congress operates
can restore it. What changes does he see as necessary? And how does he see them 
coming about?

In Between: Along the Road to a Post-Racial America?
Wednesday, October 27, 2010
Mark Morrison-Reed, Unitarian Universalist minister, discusses In Between: Memoir
of an Integration Baby, his memoir of growing up during the era of the civil rights
movement. The author wrestles with racism, the death of Martin Luther King, black
radicalism, his interracial family, and his experience as one of the first black
 Unitarian Universalist ministers. What was it like for African Americans who were
among the first to bring racial diversity to their neighborhoods, schools, churches,
or workplaces?
