Join us for a staged reading of longtime labor organizer Gene Bruskin's new musical "The Return of John Brown" co-sponsored by the Labor Heritage Foundation and Teaching for Change.

Legendary abolitionist and the first person in the nation executed for treason in 1859, John Brown climbs out of his grave in Virginia where he was hanged, only to be rearrested and threatened with another hanging. While his trial unwinds, the past and the present merge as Brown’s inspiring story is told through humor, music, mystery, and drama.
