* Triangle Shirtwaist Fire EventTriangle Shirtwaist Fire Event
Time: 6:00 pm
Remembering the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. Organized by Valeria G. Castelli in partnership with the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition. Co-sponsored with Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, Italian American Writers Association, National Organization of Italian American Women.
Spaces are limited. RSVP today. Casa Italiana at New York University, 24 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011. Join us for an evening commemorating the March 25, 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory tragedy. On the eve of the 106th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, which killed 146 people (123 of whom were young female immigrant workers), various forms of artistic expression—a theatrical performance, a documentary film, a memorial project—keep alive the memory of what happened in 1911 and of its significance for the history of the US labor movement. Art also reminds contemporary audiences of the symbolic and political value of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in generating a discourse about workers’ rights and dignity, and about illegal situations of the exploitation of labor in the US and abroad.
