Walsh's Romero Theater Troupe performs at AFSCME national conference
Political science instructor Jim Walsh’s Romero Theater Troupe, together with several CU Denver students and other community partners, produced a featured theatrical performance at the 2013 national American Federation of State and County Municipal Employees (AFSCME) conference in Denver, last month. The AFSCME performance highlighted the Memphis Garbage workers strike where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. The performance received a standing ovation from the 900 person audience, one of the largest audiences or the Romero Troupe to date. Many students in Walsh's innovative university courses on social movements, people's history, and labor issues work in this theater company with Walsh.
