100th Anniversary of Ludlow, Colorado Massacre
Remember Ludlow with Zeese Papanikolas
A century ago while trying to organize a union, miners, their wives and children died in an event that set off the Colorado Coalfields War. Zeese Papanikolas, author of Buried Unsung - Louis Tikas and the Ludlow Massacre, will give a presentation, followed by a video and a remembrance in verse. The conditions of the miners and their families in Ludlow, Colorado are replicated today around the world with mining disasters in Turkey, China and Bolivia. The immigrants who built America and are the focus of Zeese’s book speak out about their lives and struggles for justice.
