The Lowell Textile Strike of 1912

Many are familiar with the Bread and Roses Strike which took place in Lawrence and which celebrates its centennial this year. What is not so well known is that the Lawrence action led to other strikes, one of which occurred in Lowell that same year. Next Tuesday, April 10, 2012 beginning at 5:30 pm at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum, 115 John Street in Lowell, a host of entities including the Bread and Roses Centennial Committee, UMass Lowell, the Lowell National Park, the Tsongas Industrial History Center and others, will present a program on The Lowell Textile Strike of 1912. It’s free and open to the public.
