In 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 at the turn of the 20th century.

Nearly 50 year later, throughout World War II, as the boys went off to fight, 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.

This event takes place at the Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center at 246 Market Street, Lowell, MA 01852 (Free parking at 304 Dutton Street, Lowell, MA).

Free event, but please RSVP by phone to 978-970-5080 or by email to: tihc@uml.edu.

This event is presented by the Tsongas Industrial History Center and Lowell National Historical Park with funding provided by the Moses Greeley Parker Lecture Series.
