Description: The Columbia Center for Oral History presents “United in Anger: Historicizing ACT UP,” a public workshop by ACT UP Oral History Project co-directors Jim Hubbard and Sarah Schulman on their interviews with surviving members of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash to Power, a group that was formed in 1987 to raise public consciousness about the evolving epidemic. Hubbard and Schulman will introduce the project, review its history, share the insights gained and discuss how they ultimately seek to "demystify the process of making social change."
