  •  Thx! (0+ / 0-)

    Here's a suggestion: check out Ronnie Gilbert on Mother Jones. It's a play about Mother Jones by Ronnie Gilbert with some songs by Si Kahn.

    The play is only about 50 pages of medium size type, but with a long introduction, it comes to 125 pages. Seems it sold pretty well in the 90s. And I've seen parts of it performed.

    More info on steelworkers and specifically about the mill and the town where your dad worked would make a great intro! Photos also.

    By "seeing it on line", I meant Performed on line, that would be great also.

    I am all for more labor culture, a great way to preserve memories of a vital time. A time when Solidarity was a real bond between Brothers and Sisters, & not just a word.

    & thx for the offer to send it to me, will send my email!

      but I'll need a few bucks to cover costs. I sell them on my site for the play
      www.the28inchmill.com

      If you can watch VHS, I'll give you one of those for the postage. I've got a bunch left and use them for promo copies. I'll send you as many of those as you want. Pass them around to anyone who may be interested in keeping this story alive.

      I don't want to put the whole video online because I sell them and some day I may perform it again.

      but I am working on getting some new clips up on the site and youtube that are better quality. and then I'll embed some here in the appropriate installments.

      and thx for the tip on Mother Jones/Ronnie Gilbert. I'll check it out.

      no man is completely worthless, he can always be used as a bad example.
