      Mark Rogovin will speak

       

      Mark Rogovin will speak about his booklet, The Day Will Come, about the people buried alongside the Haymarket martyrs at our Forest Home cemetery.  He will talk about the discoveries he made in developing The Day Will Come (bios of the over 150 progressives buried alongside the martyrs.

      Mark will also talk about the Haymarket martyrs and people from Third Unitarian Church (like Norm Roth, whose memorial service is this afternoon) who were in his book. 

      He will also speak on the art of his father, Milton Rogovin, an internationally known photographer and a HUAC survivor. His focus was poor and working people, whom he photographed in 12 nations over a 50-year period. Gage Gallery of Roosevelt University is currently hosting a major exhibition of his work.

      Mark Rogovin assisted Mexican muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros on his last mural, the March of Humanity. A graduate school of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1970. He founded the Public Art Workshop, a mural center in the Austin community.

      Among other projects, he co-authored Mural Manual, the only step-by-step guide to producing murals for classrooms and street corners.  In 1981 he co-founded the Peace Museum and was its director for four years. In 1997 he directed a nationwide organization to celebrate the centennial of singer and activist Paul Robeson.

      Mark now heads the Rogovin Collection with a mission to promote the educational use of the social documentary photography of his father.

      For more of progressive words and action, stay on for the service in the sanctuary and the coffee hour that follows our Celebration of Life. Then, stay around or return for the memorial service for Norm Roth at 3:00PM.
