Published by Charta. Text by Nato Thompson, Rebecca Schneider, Mark Tribe.
The Port Huron Project is a series of reenactments of Vietnam-era protest speeches staged between 2006 and 2008 by artist Mark Tribe. The original speeches were given by Angela Davis in Oakland, Cesar Chavez in Los Angeles, Stokely Carmichael in New York, Paul Potter in Washington, D.C., Howard Zinn in Boston and Coretta Scott King in New York. Each event took place at the site of the original speech, and was delivered by an actor or performance artist to an audience of invited guests and passersby. Videos of these performances have been shown at museums, galleries, universities and even on a giant video screen in Times Square. This book features transcripts of the original speeches, photographs of the reenactments, archival photographs of the original speakers, critical essays by Nato Thompson (a curator at Creative Time) and Rebecca Schneider (Chair of the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies at Brown University) and a statement by the artist.
