Walking Tour Of 60’s Activism In Montreal

“In April and May of 2010, Sean Mills, the author of The Empire Within: Postcolonial Thought and Political Activism in Sixties Montreal, led walking tours of some of the places that were most important to 1960s and 70s Montreal’s political history. By doing so, he brought to life the city’s past and the subjects of his book, while showcasing the everyday urban historical sites that tend to be overlooked. Due to the success of the walks and the shared desire of MQUP and the author to make Montreal’s activist history available to a broader audience, we have recorded a podcast of the tour. We hope that this will encourage more interaction, knowledge, understanding, and discussion of Montreal’s lively urban history. ”

The page below has the audio files that go with the walking tour. Pretty cool!
