Join public historian Kathleen Hulser to hear about mavericks such as Emma Goldman, Isadora Duncan, Dorothy Day, Mabel Dodge, Louise Bryant, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lorraine Hansberry, Nina Simone, Jane Jacobs, and Angela Davis and the many other rebellious spirits who left their mark on Greenwich Village – and on the world.
Geographically and spiritually, Washington Square has always been the center of the Village. Bohemia’s beating heart. A place to gather, whether to protest or just hang out, often with a guitar. The now-traditional Village Trip concert in the Park, headlined this year by Grammy-winning local heroes The Klezmatics, celebrates Greenwich Village as “a state of mind with no boundaries.”
