The International Youth and Students for Social Equality at UM is proud to sponsor a showing of the great historical documentary Tsar to Lenin, introduced by David North, national chairman of the Socialist Equality Party and chairman of the editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site. North will introduce the film with a concise assessment of “The Historical Significance and Enduring Political Relevance of the 1917 Russian Revolution.” In the aftermath of the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the propagandists of the ruling class declared that this represented the decisive triumph of capitalism. However, as capitalism confronts its greatest crisis since the 1930s, the events of 1917 once again acquire immense relevance. As class conflict intensifies in the United States and internationally, the need for renewed study of the greatest revolution of the twentieth century becomes ever more urgent.

Folk-rock singer-songwriter from Meridian, Mississippi, who took New York City by storm in the mid-70s with his neo-Dylanesque blend of rough-mannered plain talk and romantic self-mythologizing. He’s still best known for the songs on his early LPs, Alive on Arrival and Jackrabbit Slim, but his 90s CDs, The American in Me and Streets of This Town, have earned him greater critical favor as a deft chronicler of ordinary lives. His new CD, Over with You, is a song cycle exploring the mixed emotions generated by personal relationships.
