You're Cordially Invited toDinner with Oliver StoneLive and in Person!
Saturday, Feb. 2, in Madison
Here's your chance to meet this great director and hear him talk about his "Untold History of the United States."
After the dinner, Oliver Stone and his collaborator, the historian Peter Kuznick, will be airing a segment of their Showtime series "The Untold History of the United States," at the Barrymore Theatre next door.
And then The Progressive's editor, Matthew Rothschild, will interview them on stage.
That event costs $20, and tickets can be purchased at barrymorelive.com or by phone at (608) 241-8633 in the afternoons. (Co-sponsors of the dinner get in free.)
3 Reasons Why You Should Support The Progressive's Endowment
- You appreciate what The Progressive stands for: peace, political and economic democracy, a preserved environment; an end to all discrimination, the curbing of corporate power, opposition to militarism and war and empire; the promotion of universal health care, labor rights, civil rights, human rights, civil liberties, and nonviolence.
- You value independent media. The consolidated corporate media doesn't tell you what's really going. But The Progressive does. As Fighting Bob La Follette wrote in 1920: "Do you want to be free, economically and politically free? Then organize for a free and independent press."
- You are concerned about the fate of our country -- and our planet. The dream of democracy in America is under unprecedented assault today by the corporate elite and a resurgent rightwing movement. The planet itself spins on an ever-more fragile axis. Beset by global warming, war, and inequality, the very survival of the Earth itself is at risk. The Progressive not only throws a spotlight on these dangers, it offers solutions to them.
For more than 100 years, The Progressive has been carrying the torch for progressive values -- your values. With your support, it will continue for another 100 years or more.
