Screening of 1913 Massacre film

October 25, 2013
The Mining Journal

MARQUETTE - A screening of the 1913 Massacre will be shown at 2 p.m., Saturday, at the DeVos Art Museum, Marquette.

There will be a question-and-answer session with the filmmakers immediately afterward.

The film focuses on the Italian Hall tragedy, in which 75 people were killed in a stampede at a Christmas celebration. It also discusses the mining protests that occurred during this event, which left Calumet grieving during a time of poor working conditions, low wages and working-class struggles.

For more information, call Melissa Matuscak at 227-2355.
