On June 23 I offered a multi-media presentation to the combined Senior Adult Club and Chisuk Emuna Congregation Lunch and Learn program at the Harrisburg JCC, titled:  “The Legacy of the Triangle Fire – 100 Years Out.”  The program, in a lecture/recital format, was built around the biographies of several women who were young needleworkers and became and remained social activists for their entire lives.  Archival photos and calligraphic tributes to the indigent victims of the Triangle Fire rounded out the program which featured Yiddish songs of needleworkers and the labor movement interspersed among the lecture points.
