[Chicago] A series of open discussions on Socialism and the Possibility of Human Freedom

December 20, 2018
September 6-December 20
6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Harold Washington Library
400 S. State St., Chicago

A series of open discussions on Socialism and the Possibility of Human Freedom

In the face of rampant racism, sexism, inequality, environmental destruction, and growing authoritarianism, the question facing us is can humanity become free? This is not just the problem of our era; it also the theme of Raya Dunayevskaya’s classic book, Marxism and Freedom, first published in 1958. Join us for our exploration of this work in light of the search for a viable socialist alternative to capitalism today.

Meetings every other Thursday, starting September 6, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Harold Washington Library, 400 S. State St., Chicago, 7th floor (Room 7N-5)

Sponsored by the International Marxist-Humanist Organization

All readings are available for free by contacting us at arise@internationalmarxisthumanist.org
