    A Gary Tape

    An organizing workshop led by activist Staughton Lynd at Indiana University Northwest on 9-16-71 to discuss organizing around tax policy and investigating grocery pricing in Illinois and Indiana.

  • The Mother #1

    The Mother #1

    Footage from a performance of an English-language version of the Bertolt Brecht play “The Mother.” This performance appears to be at a smaller theatre, with very minimal set and prop design—many of the setting details are conveyed by the chorus saying the scene’s expository text out loud in unison. This tape contains the first four of the play’s fourteen scenes.
