One-Day Seminar: Early Reformers in the Labor Movement hosted by Hamilton County, TN Schools (Held Online)
August 9 @ 9:25 am - 11:10 am
The post Civil War industrial era galvanized labor movements and unions. A clash between industry and labor was often met with violent strikes such as Pullman, Homestead and Haymarket Square. This seminar will focus on some of the early reformers such Eugene Debs, Samuel Gompers and their influence on America’s labor history.
This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance (found here) and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.
