The event will conclude with food, drinks, and a performance by the Strike Debt Radical Children’s Theater, facilitated by the Little Red Squares Childcare Collective.
Strike Debt looks to Martin Luther King not just for his charisma and inspirational standard, but more broadly as a cultural symbol of a dream deferred–a dream not just of civic equality, but of a multiracial beloved community based on economic justice at local, national, and global scales. In his seminal 1967 speech “Where Do We Go From Here?” King named “the capitalistic system” itself as the obstacle to that dream, and called for a “restructuring of American society as a whole.”
