Wed. June 19th - Special Song Performance at Busboys & Poets - 6 pm - "Fruit of Labor Singing Ensemble"
[Note: Our usual 4th Tuesday Busboys & Poets event will not take place this month because of this special program.]
Fruit of Labor Singing Ensemble, a North Carolina-based singing group, presents music and songs that beautifully celebrate the "fruitful victories of oppressed people and workers’ glorious history, sorrow and joy!"
Bread & Roses is a monthly labor series that features a variety of events focused on workers and organized labor. Each month brings a new topic through interactive discussions, film screenings, and performances. The hope for these events is that attendees walk away with a greater understanding of organized labor, its role in shaping history and current relevance. The name "Bread & Roses" was inspired by a poem/song written by James Oppenheim that appeals for both fair wages and dignified conditions.
