This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

Join us for a very special edition of the Hull House Museum's "Rethinking Soup" discussion and lecture meal event where you get free soup and get to hear wonderful guest speakers. We are lucky to be able to host veteran farmer-activist John Kinsman, who at 85 years old has lived through most of the major social movements of the 20th century. He has participated in organizing around international economic justice issues, always from the position of a Wisconsin dairy farmer. Kinsman will speak about his connection to the Civil Rights Movement through the Wisconsin Labor struggles of recent months during which his group, Family Farm Defenders, organized a tractor-cade convergence on the state capital. Kinsman will be interviewed live by Daniel Tucker, local author (Farm Together Now: A Portrait of People Places and Ideas for a New Food Movement) and current MFA candidate in the UIC School of Art and Design.
