Events at Takoma

Bread and Roses: Soundtrack for a Revolution 2.20.18
Takoma | Nicolás Guillén Room | February 20, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Bread & Roses is a monthly labor series that features a variety of events focused on workers and organized labor. Each month brings a new topic through interactive discussions, film screenings, and performances. The hope for these events is that attendees walk away with a greater understanding of organized labor, its role in shaping history and current relevance. The name "Bread & Roses" was inspired by a poem/song written by James Oppenheim that appeals for both fair wages and dignified conditions.
