What is protest for? On Thursday, February 11, join The Point Magazine at Hull House for a moderated discussion between:
Bill Ayers, Activist and Educator
Janaé E. Bonsu, National Public Policy Chair, BYP 100
Charles W. Mills, Professor of Philosophy, Northwestern University
Over the past year, protests have broken out at home and abroad, on college campuses and in the streets. As a tactic for change, as a space for mourning or empowerment, what does protest seek to accomplish, and how do we know when a protest has been successful? With an eye to current movements and their forbears, The Point has gathered a slate of activists and thinkers to examine a question both enduring and urgent.
Doors open at 6pm, talk begins at 6:30. Admission is free!
The Point is a print and digital magazine of philosophical writing that embodies two distinct but complementary convictions: on the one hand, that humanistic thinking has relevance for contemporary life; on the other, that our lives are full of experiences worth thinking about.
