Mark Tribe: The Port Huron Project

Reenactments Of New Left Protest Speeches

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.
Mark Tribe: The Port Huron Project

FROM THE BOOK
"The Port Huron Project served as a barometer for contemporary democracy. Re-spoken at the sites where they were first uttered, the words of historic New Left figures resonated like echoes in a time capsule. As it had been in the 1960s, the country was again caught up in a protracted, unpopular war. But a protest movement could hardly be located. Articulate radicals like Angela Davis, Cesar Chavez and Stokely Carmichael seemed to have disappeared from public life. With the country in such political turmoil, what was it that made protest so unpopular? The antiglobalization movement of the early twenty-first century had faded on U.S. soil under the trauma of 9/11, and the streets went silent."

Nato Thompson, excerpted from Yesterday's Future in The Port Huron Project.
