David Shapiro performing Wally Shawn’s one-man play, The Fever. American Theatre commenting on the play: “Recalling the onset of illness in a Third World hotel bathroom, the narrator tells about his privileged childhood, his elitist adulthood, and his gradual realization that he must share responsibility for his society’s immorality.... You can react to Shawn’s play in one of two ways—you can get angry, or you can reevaluate your life.” When this production premiered in Chicago in 1995, Wallace Shawn said: “I wish I could have done it like David did, but I didn’t know how.”

A benefit for Revolution Books. Call for information and to reserve tickets. 212-691-3345.

September 23, Sunday, 4-8 pm
Preview showing of the film of a new talk by Bob Avakian, Why We Need an Actual Revolution and How We Can Really Make Revolution. If you have agonized about the horrors of this society, but did not know why we face all this and thought there was no way out… this filmed speech will reveal why those outrages go on and how they can be changed.

If you have thought that even if people could get together on it, revolution was not really possible up against the powerful repressive machinery we face… this filmed speech will challenge you.

If you have hungered for fundamental change, but did not know where to begin… this filmed speech will give you the map you need and the way to connect.

Film at 4 pm sharp, doors open at 3:30 pm. There will be an intermission. A half-hour program will follow the screening. Refreshments and light snacks will be served.

RSVP: revbooksnyc@yahoo.com or 212-691-3345

September 26, Wednesday, 7 pm
How to Be Less Stupid About Race, with author Crystal Fleming. This young writer and sociologist has penned a work of social critique, humorous personal anecdotes, and analysis of the latest interdisciplinary scholarship on racism. She takes on the so-called “national conversation on race” and what she calls “racial stupidity in the Obama era.” She recounts how she came to understand the reality of Barack Obama as a war criminal, and goes on to slam Trump’s open white supremacy combined with vehement denials of racism. The book draws on critical race theory, as well as her own experiences as a queer Black millennial professor and researcher.

Crystal Fleming is Associate Professor of Sociology and Africana Studies at State University of New York, Stony Brook, and is a contributing writer for The Root, Black Agenda Report, Vox, and Everyday Feminism. She’s also the author of Resurrecting Slavery: Racial Legacies and White Supremacy in France.
