Judith Black – “The Rabble Rouser, Mother Jones” and “Rosie the Riveter”

judith-blackIn two first-person presentations, professional storyteller Judith Black interprets Mother Jones and Rosie the Riveter.  Mary Harris Jones. “Mother Jones,” was born in 1830. Her life as an agitator, organizer, and advocate of the working man raised the consciousness of turn of the century America. Fast forward 100 years and we’ll find that throughout World War II, as the boys went off to fight Hitler, Rosie the Riveter “manned” the factories and kept the front supplied. With humor and chutzpah (daring), this story explores the issues that women dealt with on the job during the war.  RSVP by email to: TIHC@UML.edu.
