On Saturday August 3rd Mary Ann Wynkoop, the author of the book: Dissent in the Heartland, will be moderating a discussion of the 1962 ”Fair Play for Cuba” march.  The march was enacted by fewer than 30 Bloomingtonians opposing the Cuban blockade of 1962. The marchers faced and were attacked by thousands of violent bystanders,  and three of them were charged in the subsequent 1963 Bloomington Three Subversion Case.  This case,  in which the three faced felony charges under a 1951 Indiana Anti-Subversive Act attracted national and international attention. Two of the three people charged and one other participant in the march attended the event.  Speakers included Mary Ann Wynkoop, Tom Morgan, Paul-Ann Sheets and Ralph Levitt. This event was recorded on location at the Bloomington Library by Community Access Television Services for Standing Room Only, on WFHB.
