When: November 18, 2015 at 4th Floor Meeting Room
Barbara worked on the alternative newspaper [http://oldnews.aadl.org/papers/aa_sun|The Ann Arbor Sun] in the 1970s. The newspaper was the mouthpiece for the White Panther Party and the succeeding Rainbow People’s Party before being an independent publication devoted to local issues, left-wing politics, music, and arts. In this interview, Barbara talks about her days working on The Sun, how a newspaper actually came together in the days before computers, and the relationship between art and social justice.
