Local Concerts Celebrate Joe Hill’s Life
The 100th anniversary of labor martyr Joe Hill’s death is being marked this week with two concerts. An immigrant and organizer at the turn of the century, Hill was executed by a Utah firing squad in 1915 after being convicted of what have now been established as trumped-up charges. The Joe Hill Roadshow is celebrating the life and legacy of this iconic organizer with a series of concerts, including:
