Description

What can today’s activists learn from the successes and failures of their precursors? First in this series, we welcome Larry Kramer, an award-winning playwright (The Normal Heart) and author, and a celebrated public health and gay rights advocate. As a pioneering AIDS activist, he co-founded the Gay Men’s Health Crisis in 1982 and founded ACT UP in 1987. He speaks with Charles Blow, New York Times Op-Ed columnist and author of Fire Shut Up in My Bones.
 
Part of the series “The First 100 Days.” Presented with the CLAGS: The Center for LGBTQ Studies, the Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC), and the Ph.D. Program in History.
