Honorees include UAW President Dennis Williams and Michigan United Dinner Co-Chairs: UAW Vice President Cindy Estrada and Michigan AFL-CIO President Ron Bieber John Nichols, political editor for The Nation magazine and frequent commentator on MSNBC, will be the keynote speaker at this year's Frederick Douglass-Eugene V. Debs Dinner. He is an exceptional speaker with a wealth of knowledge of both politics and socialism.
