Join Will Kaufman as he performs his live musical documentary The Long Road To Peekskill. It tells the story of Woody Guthrie’s transformation from a young Oklahoma racist to the ardent anti-racist champion who risked his life protesting American fascism during the notorious Peekskill riots of 1949.
This is both a harrowing and uplifting presentation, showing through the example of Woody Guthrie that racists are not born, but made – and that they can be unmade.
In association with The People’s Bookshop.
