Historians and labor activists will participate in talks and panel discussions on contemporary labor struggles in the U.S. and around the world. This is the final event in a series at FIT commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, which took the lives of 146 factory workers, most of them poor immigrant women, and led to passage of the most sweeping set of workplace labor reforms in America. Exhibits by artists and FIT students also will be on display.

Participants include Cecil Roberts, president, United Mine Workers of America; Delta Pride catfish workers, and Dr. Richard A. Greenwald, historian, professor, and social critic.

This all-day event is free and open to the public.
