Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library Speaker will be Eugene E Ruyle, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, CSU Long Beach, currently with ICSS in Oakland. Gene will discuss his forthcoming book, Socialism for Americans: A Scientific Introduction to the Global Struggle for Socialism.

Green Sunday: Move to Amend and Efforts to End Corporate Rule @ Niebyl Proctor Library
Jan 12 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
