Hibernian Influence in Rhode Island's Labor Movement

Irish immigrants flocked to membership and leadership in the 19th century American Labor movement. Through strikes and political activity, these "horny-fisted sons and daughters of toil" created a new and better life here. Come hear their story! Scott Molloy presents, IrishLTD provides the music and the stories behind the songs.  Light refreshments served.
