Lessons from the Vietnam Antiwar Movement
The People Make Peace: Book Talk
at Berkeley Main Public Library, 2090 Kittredge St. Berkeley Community Meeting Room 3rd Floor, Doors open 10:15am
Join us to hear the stories of three distinguished activists, Rennie Davis, one of the Chicago 7, who is visiting from Colorado, Judy Gumbo, one of the founders of the Yippies and Frank Joyce, a labor and peace activist from Detroit, as they discuss their roles in the antiwar movement, including their risky wartime travels to Vietnam to engage in people-to-people diplomacy. They returned together to Vietnam in 2013 and contributed to this outstanding new book. Their successes in antiwar organizing will challenge the myths that still linger from that era, and inspire a new generation seeking peaceful solutions to war and conflict today.
This event is sponsored by the Berkeley Public Library, Eastwind Books of Berkeley, and Just World Books.
