By Rockin’ Solidarity Labor Chorus
An account in song and story of the Great Depression and the New Deal. The show draws musically from the Wobblies’ Little Red Songbook, Woody Guthrie, Duke Ellington, Yip Harburg, and The People’s Songbook. The narrative highlights the contributions of Frances Perkins, FDR’s Secretary of Labor and first female cabinet member, to the New Deal’s innovations, as an inspiration to the 99% today. For more information: (415) 648-3457.
