The Brecht Forum turns 35 this year and we think that's reason to celebrate! Established back in 1975 as the New York Marxist School, the Brecht’s founders sought  to help advance an emancipatory left culture in the United States. Through the rise of Reaganism and neoliberalism, through the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa and the fall of the Berlin Wall, to the protests that shut down the World Bank meetings in Seattle, to the September 11th attacks and the rise and decline of the anti-war movement in the years that followed, the Brecht has been a hub of left thinking and activity.

We hope that you will join with the many friends, teachers, students, organizers and supporters who have made the Brecht Forum the largest and longest-running marxist educational center in the US.

In what promises to be a memorable evening, we will be honoring long-time Capital teacher, David Harvey, and outstanding organizer Bhairavi Desai, the Executive Director of the Taxi Workers Alliance.  Tony award winning actor André DeShields will be performing an excerpt from his acclaimed one-man show Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory":" From Douglass to Deliverance and several special guests will continue to be announced in the coming weeks.

Now more than ever, the work of the Brecht Forum is urgently needed. As we celebrate 35 years of joining theory with practice, we are establishing The Next Generation Fund with the goal of raising $350,000 to help ensure that this work continues well into the future.
