Industry's Revolution: The Labor Movement in Boston and Beyond
September 9, 2010
Industry arrived in the early years of our young republic, and with it came a vigorous labor movement that paralleled the path of our nation’s social and cultural history. The American labor movement has endured picket lines, police batons and strikes, and has celebrated the successful creation of fair workers’ rights and safer working conditions. Come join Phillip Dray, award-winning author of There is Power in a Union, to examine how the labor movement over time has invoked our nation’s revolutionary ideals—freedom, individualism and liberty—in its exploration of labor, capital, class politics and corporate might.
