of the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire -- considered
the deadliest industrial tragedy of its time, -- come see the book display in the Library, and go to the Boston Workmen's Circle multi-media performance "The Cloth From Which We
Are Cut" Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Simmons College.
The stirring performance portrays the poverty and
struggles of various immigrant communities in the early 1900s by combining
historical narrative with the folk music that was born in the sweatshops. The
catastrophe had an enormous impact on both women's and workers' rights.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will
take place in the Linda K. Paresky Conference Center at Simmons College, 300
The Fenway in Boston.
