Labor Will Feed the People: Celebrating the Seattle General Strike Centennial

This event has passed.

For six days Seattle stood still as thousands of workers walked off the job. Making headlines around the world, the 1919 General Strike inspired others in the labor movement both nationally and internationally.

Experience this historic moment through an immersive performance featuring the voices of workers, politicians, businessmen, and live music. Join us at 6:30 pm for a traveling exhibit and hands-on activities. The live performance begins at 7 pm, followed by a post-show talk back and Q & A.

Created by playwright Ed Mast and the Seattle Labor Chorus in collaboration with the UW Labor Archives of Washington and historian James Gregory.

Come early for a bite to eat at the South Lake Café before the program, open until 6:30 pm.

For disability accommodations, please contact programs@mohai.org two weeks prior to the event.
