Thursday, September 7th from 6-8 PM
“Ludlow” narrates the story of Greek immigrants at the beginning of the last century, who ended up in distant Colorado working under inhuman conditions in the coal mines and who together with immigrants from 22 other countries revolted and wrote a proud page of American labor history, known as the Colorado Coal War, a long strike that started peacefully in 1913 and ended in armed confrontation after the Ludlow Massacre in April 1914. It is a story not often mentioned in history books, but alive in the memory of the children and the grandchildren of the men who fought for their life and dignity. They recount their family history with pride and anger in their voice, pride for their forefathers and anger for the injustices they were faced with. Their testimonies are completed with interviews of dedicated Ludlow researchers and historians, documented with rare archival material and enriched with music, photographs and video.
