The Indypendent will continue its 15th anniversary year celebrations this Tuesday evening (Nov. 17) with a house party at a supporter’s home near the NYU campus. Historian Blanche Wiesen Cook, philosopher Linda Martín Alcoff and award-winning independent photojournalist Antrim Caskey will on hand as special guests.
Tuesday night’s event will be held from 6:30-9:00 pm in an apartment with a gorgeous, south-facing view of Lower Manhattan. Snacks will be served along with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Admission is free. We will have a brief program during the party when our special guests will describe why they support the paper and encourage everyone to give to the best of their ability to help keep The Indypendent going strong.
We look forward to everyone having a great time just as we did at last month’s 15th anniversary house party in Brooklyn.

Antrim Caskey was a prolific staff photographer at The Indypendent in 2005 when she began covering the struggle in West Virginia against Mountain Top Removal, an especially destructive mining practice. Mining companies had her arrested multiple times while she pursued the story. Her work on MTR appeared in The Indypendent, The Smithsonian, Nature, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. In 2011, Caskey received the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Prize for Domestic Photography for Dragline, a 76-page book of her best photography from West Virginia.
