Mark Tribe: Port Huron Project

The Port Huron Project is a series of reenactments of protest speeches from the 1960s and '70s. Each event takes place at the site of the original speech, and is delivered by an actor to an audience of invited guests and passers-by. Videos based on these reenactments are presented in various venues and distributed online and on DVD as open-source media. The project is inspired by the Port Huron Statement, the visionary 1962 manifesto of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)*, a student activist organization that played a key role in the American New Left.
