    7:30pm – 10pmOnline screening

    Online screening of Haymarket, a brand new feature length documentary followed by discussion with the director Adrian Prawica

    The notorious Chicago Haymarket Tragedy (also known as the Haymarket Square Affair), where a bomb thrown into the ranks of Police was followed by an eruption of panic and violence resulting in a trial and execution of presumably innocent workers' rights activists, is examined in this feature documentary film. Expert historians and professors present the history of the bomb, the anarchists, other political movements of the 19th century, and the labor struggle of working people fighting for a shorter work day during the industrial might of America's Gilded Age. Named a "MUST-SEE" documentary for labor history and the understanding of the American working class.
