Bracketed by performances by Anu Yadav, whose one-woman show was
developed with and based on the stories of families who protested the
government-funded relocation and demolition of their public housing
project in Washington D.C., this interdisciplinary panel discussion will
explore the intersections between education and activism, between policy
making and poor people's movements. Discussants include Ira Shor,
Professor of Composition and Rhetoric at the Graduate Center, CUNY and
author of the recent 3-volume series on the late Paulo Freire, along
with activists Willie Baptist, Co-Coordinator of the University of the
Poor and Poverty Initiative Scholar in Residence at Union Theological
Seminary, and a representative from Picture the Homeless. The panel will
be moderated by Stephen Pimpare, Assistant Professor of Political
Science at Yeshiva College and author of the forthcoming The Indignant
Poor: A People's History of Poverty and Welfare.
