Poet and Civil Rights activist Margaret (Peggy) Rozga is author of 200 Nights and One Day (Benu Press, 2009). Her play, March on Milwaukee: A Memoir of the Open Housing Protests, is based on her experience in the civil rights movement in Milwaukee. In 2007, she received the UW Colleges Chancellor's award for outstanding achievement for the events she organized to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Milwaukee's open housing marches.
Peggy will talk about social justice work she’s done and how to hang in there despite discouragement, and the roles poetry has played in this effort to keep her eyes on the prize.
“What Should I Do With (the Rest of) My Life?” Ted Rulseh
A wise person said that life is like a roll of tape: The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes. As many of us reach the stage where we can count our remaining years on our fingers and toes, how do we make life decisions? Is this a time to follow the classic pre-retirement advice and avoid taking risks? Or is this a time to throw at least some caution to the wind -- to do the things we love and make a difference where we think it matters? John Ted in revisiting the question posed by the poet Mary Oliver: "What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
Ted is a long time member of LUUF who has moved north. He's a writer you'll enjoy. He always has something interesting to say.
