    We love our klezmer evenings with Yale, Elizabeth Schwartz, and their hot band; this time we’ve got something different from this multifaceted team. They’re serving up an evening of Yiddish and American labor songs, (come and sing with us) inspired by Yale’s work last year producing the film “American Socialist,” spotlighting the life and work of Eugene Debs, early labor organizer. It was a culmination of six years of research and production, prompted by the current use of the word “socialist” as a political epithet. Most people in America do not know that the contemporary political movement to address income inequality began over 100 years ago with Eugene Victor Debs. The film traces the history of American populism, with the man who inspired progressive ideas – from FDR’s New Deal to Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.
