The St. Louis Workers’ Education Society is proud to announce the first-ever WES Awards, honoring Gerald Horne.

Gerald is a St. Louis native, WES supporter, distinguished professor and prolific historian of over 30 books, primarily on African American history. He holds the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston.

He is considered on of the most prolific and important historians alive today.

As I’m sure you know, WES is committed to on-going worker-education with a special focus on the intersection of workers’ rights, racial justice, sexual and gender-minority rights and disabilities empowerment.

We hope you will agree that Gerald embodies the overall mission of WES and our emphasis on education as liberation and is well deserving of the first ever.

We hope you will support WES, the work we’re doing and our Awardee with an ad in our program booklet and/or with a ticket or table purchase. Program booklet ads are $500 (full page), $300 (half page), $150 (1/4 page); tickets are $50 per-person or $400 per-table of ten.

Please make checks payable to: WES, 2929 S. Jefferson Ave., St. Louis, MO 63118. Ad book deadline is September 18.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday, September 22nd.
