Thanks for coming out to the Mother Jones Birthday Bash!
This May Day, we teamed up with museums across the region to celebrate Mother Jones' 180 Birthday!
Why the fuss? We believe that Mother Jones' efforts in West Virginia has much to teach us about this moment in our country--about how the rich have pitted working people against each other to protect their own wealth, about how fights for our rights as Americans are won over decades and centuries, and about how it takes communities of people working together across difference to win and protect those rights.
What better way to dive into this history than a party for one of its heroes? Thank YOU for being a part of it!
The new Miner's Memorial exhibit is now on display!
Beginning this April, you can find the new Miner's Memorial exhibit on display in our storefront in Matewan. While there, you can make a check tag in memory of a fallen miner. Check out the video display, great photos and stories of mine disasters in the area too. Special thanks to those of you that joined us on August 6th for the big unveiling!
