OPIRG Kingston’s People’s History Podcast

OPIRG Kingston’s People’s History Podcast aims to recognize and preserve the important roles that Kingstonians and Queen’s students have played in social movements throughout the years. The stories of people who participated in struggles for social and environmental justice – queer, indigenous, black, anti-racist, feminist, among many others – often go untold in “official” histories. The project seeks to remedy these silences by recording Kingston’s rich history of social movements and resistance.
