Civil Rights Activists and Abolitionists

Frances Fox Piven calls Good Trouble “a great little book,” and writes “I'm with you, all the way, and especially now. I don't think there has ever been a time in American history when we have so needed good trouble." West Hartford author Steve Thornton will talk about his book in this virtual program on Sunday, February 21 and how it contains important lessons for all who understand that the struggle for social justice is not over.
