Voices from the Great Steel Strike, 1919
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Carlow University students enrolled in “History 354: Special Topics: The 1919 Steel Strike” invite you to a special presentation of Dave Demarest’s stage reading Voices from the Great Steel Strike. At the Braddock Carnegie Library, 419 Library St., Braddock, 15104., Wednesday, May 1, 2019.
This rarely-performed script, based on documentary sources, was premiered at the Braddock Library 25 years ago. It documents and dramatizes the largest strike in American history up to that time, a violent yet inspiring clash that raised issues that resonate to this day: migration and immigration, race and nationality, patriotism and free speech, and workers’ rights.
Dave Demarest was a founding member of the Battle of Homestead Foundation.
