Organizer/AuthorLaborFest 2003
Celebrate the French rebellion for freedom and Solidarity with stories, poetry, music and song with Carol Denney, Larry Shaw, Samsara, Gail Ryall, Josee Andrei, Tetsurou Tanaka, Rolando Carrillo, Moh Alileche and others.

The program will feature Gail Ryall, a retired Children's Librarian and job steward with Stationary Engineers Local 39. Gail used to tell folktales to school children in Sacramento.  When she retired, she did not want to give up the art of story telling, and decided to combine her interests as a Labor History Storyteller.  She has performed in Sacramento, San Francisco (at last year's LaborFest), Oakland, Los Angeles, New York, and Arizona, at events sponsored by unions and other progressive groups. The story she will tell at the LaborFest this year, "The Detroit Woolworth Sit-Down Strike," is an upbeat, sometimes humorous tale about a successful strike by the young woman employees of the Woolworth chain of Five and Dime stores in 1937.  "I hope this story will be an inspiration to people seeking to organize today in large chains like Wal-Mart," she says.

$7.00. This event is part of LaborFest 2003.
