Movement Energy, May 15

The San Francisco Rockin Solidarity Labor Heritage Chorus has a new show — Movement Energy: History of May Day and the Eight Hour Day!

The original Labor Day was May 1, not the first Monday in September, in commemoration of the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago in 1886. Through spirited songs and the words of the participants, we tell the story of the movement for the eight hour work day which led to this massacre but did not stop there.

Come see the premiere of this new show!

Date: Thursday, May 15
Time: 7:30 PM
Place: CCSF Mission Campus, 1125 Valencia Street, between 22nd & 23rd streets, Room 109
