"Short Pay! All Out!: The Great Lawrence Strike of 1912"
The Lawrence History Center will be opening an exhibit and cultural space on January 12, 2012. The bilingual exhibit showcases the events of the strike in an intuitive, thought-provoking and conversation-starting way. This will allow the natural use of the exhibit's cultural space for lectures, meetings, performances, and community gatherings relevant to the themes of the strike of 1912.
The exhibit is housed on the sixth floor of the Everett Mill building (15 Union St., Lawrence, MA), the very place where the strike began.
Make a plan to come to Lawrence and visit. Hours are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 11am-3pm or by appointment with the Lawrence History Center(978-686-9230).
