Old Chatham Quaker Meeting will screen “The Singing Revolution” Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 7:00 PM, Potluck at 6:00 PM, in the Old Chatham Quaker Meetinghouse, 539 County Route 13, Old Chatham, NY, across from Pitt Hall Road and Powell House.
The Singing Revolution shares how, between 1987 and 1991, hundreds of thousands of Estonians gathered publicly to sing forbidden patriotic songs and share protest speeches, risking their lives to proclaim their desire for independence. While violence and bloodshed was the unfortunate end result in other occupied nations of the USSR, the revolutionary songs of the Estonians anchored their struggle for freedom, which was ultimately accomplished without the loss of a single life.
Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served and a moderated discussion will follow. For more information call 518-766-2992. For directions: www.oldchathamquakers.org
