The Stumptown Stories: Free Tuesday Lecture Series, geared to anyone who is curious about the world and community in which we live and loves to learn new things, takes place most Tuesdays at Jack London bar (basement of the Rialto, SW 4th and Alder). Free to get in, but must be 21 or over – there’s a full bar!
This Tuesday, September 24, 2013 history nerd/writer/factoid enthusiast Joe Streckert presents Radical Portland.
Portland was a tumultuous place in the early twentieth century. This town, built on the labor of transient workers, had more than its share of agitators, organizers, and pushback from a reactionary city government. Strikes were called, slogans were shouted, and Portland saw one of the largest labor stoppages in the history of the West Coast.
The presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. Always free. Always fascinating.
