Online reading group: Socialist journalism
August 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
As Malcolm X warned, “if you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” How can socialists challenge the ideas of the corporate media? How can we amplify the demands of social movements, remember lessons of past struggles, and build our own networks of resistance? Join us for a discussion of socialist writing, filming, posting and media of all kinds.
