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.
