Bread & Roses Centennial Planning Meeting, Jan. 15

99 years ago on Janurary 15, 20,000 people took to the streets of Lawrence, Massachusetts. Why?

Prof. Bob Forrant of the UMass Lowell History Dept. sent news about a community meeting to help plan events for the 2012 centennial of the legendary Bread & Roses Strike in Lawrence. The meeting, open to all, is set for Saturday, January 15, 2011, from 1 pm to 3 pm, at the headquarters of Lawrence Heritage State Park, 1 Jackson Street. The goal is to organize a year-long series of events that will be entertaining, educational, and inspiring.
