Professor Ted Merwin welcomes me to his class on March 18, 2011, to present a lecture/recital on the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, nearly 102 years to the day since the tragedy.  We will explore the conditions that led to the fire, the spectacular women who agitated for change before and following the fire, and the place of  worker safety issues in our lives today. Over twenty Yiddish songs will ring out!
