Displaying Union Power-Local 510 On Stage
A Performance by the Rock’in Solidarity Labor Heritage Chorus
The latest production to come out of the Labor Tales, Labor Drama Project tells the story of Sign & Display Union Local 510. The piece focuses on the workers who set up and take down the exhibits in the Bay Area convention halls and their struggle to build a strong and democratic union. It is based on oral history interviews and includes words or poetry set to music and performed by the Rockin’ Solidarity Labor Heritage Chorus. The project is collaboration among the San Francisco State University Labor Archives, the City College of San Francisco Labor & Community Studies Theater Arts program and Labor Heritage Chorus as well as Local 510.
The Labor Chorus, under the direction of Pat Wynne, will do an additional set of songs about solidarity and struggle with their usual passion and humor.
