On Sunday, June 16, 2013, the Rosenberg Fund for Children (RFC, www.rfc.org) will commemorate the 60th anniversary of Ethel and Julius Rosenbergs’ executions with a benefit event at The Town Hall in New York City.

This stage event intersperses dramatic readings and dramatized vignettes with music and poetry. The script, written by Ellen Meeropol (author of House Arrest), intersperses dramatic readings and dramatized vignettes with music and poetry, honors the legacy of resistance passed on from the Rosenbergs and others, and celebrates the courage of families who continue to resist today.

Activist legend Angela Davis will be the program's narrator, Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues and Emotional Creature) will portray Ethel Rosenberg, and Cotter Smith will portray Julius Rosenberg.

The program embraces the history of progressive activism both through a look back at past generations, and in the context of today’s struggles. It honors the community of people who are working for social justice, and shows activists, and their children, that they are not alone.

We will have music from Rebel Diaz — a progressive, Latino hip hop group — and the husband and wife folk duo, Mike + Ruthy; and poetry from Martín Espada. Shola Lynch (director of Free Angela & All Political Prisoners) will portray the daughter of political prisoner Russell Maroon Shoatz.

Klemente Gilbert-Espada, Christina González, Emma Lang, Silvia Rodriguez Vega, RFC Board Chair Rafael Rodríguez Cruz, and Samuel Sánchez will represent RFC beneficiaries including the family of Tito Kayak, or share their own stories as activists. Addition information, including ticket orders and cast bios, is available at http://www.rfc.org/cifevent
