Harold Washington – Red Ed Reading Group

September 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for a re-scheduled September meeting of the Red Ed Reading Group. With so much going on in electoral politics right now, we wanted to get together and talk about a local example in Chicago history: the Harold Washington campaign. While not a socialist, Washington was drafted from a grassroots effort to take on the Democratic machine in Chicago. We’ll read and discuss a few short chapters from Gary Rivlin’s “Fire on the Prairie”, and talk about the potential–and challenges–of building socialist power through elections.
