 Howard Solomon is an artist, historian, and retired professor. For forty years, at Tufts, NYU, and USM, he taught courses on groups which were frequently relegated to the margins of historical memory; for his social activism in Maine, he has received lifetime achievement awards from Equality Maine and USM's Sampson Center for Diversity. Currently living in Maine but originally from Pennsylvania, Solomon was deeply affected by the attack upon a Pittsburgh synagogue in October 2018, and is eager to share his insight and perspective with others.

Please join us for a conversation about the history of antisemitism, what it looks like, why it exists, and what we can do about it.

Come hear all about this wonderful service. Bring your lunch, we’ll provide drinks, chips and dessert. Free, open to public. Call 729-0757 to register. People Plus is located at 35 Union Street, Brunswick.
