…Chicago, 6-7pm, Nov 2: Join in the struggle for equitable higher education! With a hat tip to Brecht and agitprop theater, we'll be singing a repurposed version of "Hallelujah, I'm a Bum" to help raise awareness of national adjunct working conditions. Anyone is welcome to join! The more, the merrier. This will be filmed by an independent cinematographer for national distribution.
Meet at The Horse (Michigan & Congress, NE corner). Wear dark colors. Bring your belting voice, your tambourine, your bucket drums. I'll bring an accordion. Think Threepenny Opera. Think Brecht. Think Agit-Prop. Listen to a 1928 version of the song by Harry Mac http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uKbIkYGsIg, then read the lyrics that we'll be singing and watch the introduction to Brecht below for context, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-828KqtTkA
Come ready to make a racket. Stand up! Speak out! Campus Equity NOW!
