Beat the August heat with veteran DSA member and Washington Socialist museum correspondent Bill Mosley for a tour of artworks highlighting struggles for justice at these two Smithsonian museums. See the bust of Eugene Debs and other important figures of the left; paintings by labor artist Ralph Fasanella; works by important woman artists and artists of color; and the permanent “Struggle for Justice” exhibit. We will meet near the café in the Kogod Courtyard at 1:00.

This is a repeat of a tour originally given in March. The tour is sponsored by the Metro-DC DSA Socialist Heritage Caucus.
