Join us for The Immigrants Speak: A Living History Performance on Saturday, June 2, 2012
The Immigrants Speak, created by multimedia artist, Jacqueline Cooper, is a Living History Performance about America's Jewish Immigrants and the Birth of the Garment Industry. The characters portrayed emerge from images of an 1881 to 1914 timeline, taking the audience on a journey of what it was like to leave their homeland and begin a new life in America while participating in the birth of the ladies' ready-made garment industry, an industry that impacted the world. The performance is part of Jacqueline Cooper's Follow The Thread, an exhibit on view at The Everett Mill, Floor 6, in Lawrence through June 30th.
Follow The Thread in Lawrence is hosted by The Lawrence History Center, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires, and funded in part by Massachusetts Humanities.
