I wish I was back in Oakland for this....

This Saturday, August 2, Mark Tribe presents Port Huron Project 5: The Liberation of Our People, a live reenactment of a speech given by Angela Davis in 1969. The Port Huron Project is a series of reenactments of protest speeches from the New Left movements of the Vietnam era. Each event takes place at the site of the original speech, and is delivered by an actor or performance artist to an audience of invited guests and passers-by.

Port Huron Projects 1 and 2 were presented in the form of video documentation at Southern Exposure as part of Move! Activate! Remember! (May 2007) and Hopeless and Otherwise (May-July 2008) and we continue to support Tribe in his efforts to bring a dialog around these historical speeches. Click on the image for more details.
