Walking Tour: The Radical Village with Jay Saper
The historic Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School (LREI), founded during the progressive era, has served as a haven for political dissidents and cultivated prominent social justice activists for nearly a century.
At the school, Angela Davis was friends and classmates with Weather Underground member Kathy Boudin. The children of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg enrolled after the government made them orphans. Teachers and parents alike were dragged before the House Un-American Activities Committee.
Join our guide Jay Saper to explore the lives of and sites connected to the radical playwrights, lawyers, artists, and activists who have called the school home and whose enduring contributions to social movements have transformed the nation.
Jay Saper is an educator, writer, organizer, and artist who lives in Brooklyn.
