The Rockin’ Solidarity Labor Chorus presents Working Women: A History in Story and Song, a survey that touches on, among much else, the Bread and Roses strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts: the sweatshop protests in New York before and after the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire; and, the experiences of women, black and white, in defense work during World War II. The show includes first-person testimony from teachers, an engineer, and women in the trades, four-part harmony, laughter, and sturdy old labor anthems.
