A century ago, Lenin led the world's first revolution against capitalism that successfully established a new and different government and society, the USSR. Lenin's work before, during and shortly after that revolution left a legacy of insights, strategies, and programs. This panel aims to highlight and discuss some of the most pertinent aspects for today of Lenin's life and work. We intend to include time for audience participation and discussion.
