What's Included

May 4, 1886 was a turning point in history. On that day, an unknown person threw a bomb at a labor party rally at Haymarket Square in Chicago. Eight men were held guilty of the bombing, despite a lack of evidence, and four were executed. This session will examine how that fateful day became one of the most important days in global labor history. It will trace the reverberations of that explosion, and its aftermath, not only in Chicago, but to working class organizing in the United States and beyond our borders.
