Presented by the Missouri History Museum | Lee Auditorium | Free
Rosemary Feurer, associate professor of history at Northern Illinois University, shares the history of labor in the St. Louis garment industry. From its early days as a low-wage alternative to New York and Chicago, to its post World War II decline, Feurer recounts the story of this once-thriving local industry through the stories of the workers themselves.
Presented in partnership with Bread & Roses Missouri
