Fellow Travelers looks at historically significant citizen activism, from Vietnam War opposition to more recent movements in the US, Central America and Iran, with a focus on the outsider perspective. The afternoon-to-evening event will include a screening of Swedish documentary The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975, a conversation with Mary Corey, participant in and historian of ‘60s counter-culture, and an exhibition of contemporary artists Cathy Akers, Molly Corey, Nicholas Kersulis, Ed Gomez, Sergio Torres-Torres, and Marjan Vayghan, whose work on historical activism implicates the contemporary observer of history in the making.
