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

The Hull-House Museum is honored to host Selma James, a visionary thinker and radical activist. The vastness of Ms. James' work connects contemporary movements like the modern SlutWalk and domestic worker labor legislation to decades-long examinations of unions, prisons, welfare, Marxism, and anti-Zionism. Her scope is international, linking struggles in United States to revolutions and resistance in Venezuela, Haiti, and Tanzania. The depth and breadth of Ms. James' reading and conversation will have wide appeal across communities and campaigns. We encourage you to join us for this inspiring conversation. 

This event launches a series of programs connected to the upcoming exhibit, Unfinished Business: 21st Century Home Economics, opening December 10, 2012 at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.
 
This event is co-sponsored by the Social Justice Initiative at UIC. Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is a unit of the College of Architecture and the Arts at UIC.
