Creative Acts of Protest:
A History Slam

Thursday, March 28, 2024

Americans have demonstrated boundless ingenuity in making their voices heard over the centuries. Whether it’s Bostonians dumping taxed tea into the harbor in the 1773, or 19th century bike activists delivering a 150,000-signature petition on a rack designed to look like a giant bicycle, or K-pop stans pre-registering at presidential rallies to make the events look empty in the 21st century, protest in America is constantly evolving in surprising and creative ways.

Revolutionary Spaces has drafted storytellers and historians—from the amateur to the academic—to partake in Creative Acts of Protest: A History Slam! They'll take the stage at Old South Meeting House to wow the crowd with 10-slide talks on creative examples of activism in American history. The best Slammers of the night will win some great prizes that we have up our sleeves.

Come as early as 6:00 pm for beer, soda, and excellent snacks. Then kick back and enjoy the show, which starts at 6:30 pm.

This program is made possible by the generous support of The Lowell Institute
