Olympian and Civil Rights icon John Carlos & Nation sports editor Dave Zirin will do a teach-in at the "People's Library" in the northeast corner of NYC's Liberty Plaza.
They will discuss the thread that connects the protest movements of 1968 to the movements for Justice today - from the #Occupy movement that has spread across the country and around the world, to the anger sparked by the execution of Troy Davis.
"With what's happening in this country right now any fair-minded person would have to admit righteousness is on the side of the people. But you have to steel yourself, be strong in your resolve because more than likely it will be tested." - Dr. John Carlos on #OWS
John Carlos and Dave Zirin are in New York as part of a nationwide tour to promote their new book "The John Carlos Story".http://www.haymarketbooks.org/tour/The-John-Carlos-Story
