Can't Scare Me: The Story of Mother Jones

Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 3:00pm

Curry Student Center, Studio Theatre 346 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA, Boston

Written and performed by Kaiulani Lee.

Less than a hundred years ago, two million American children worked countless hours for as little 10 cents a day—their parents worked in coalmines and textile mills with no job security, few protections and no legal right to organize. Thankfully much has changed, but far too few of us remember how. One of the principal catalysts for change was an Irish-American firebrand named Mother Jones. Obie Award winner Kaiulani Lee brings Mother Jones to life. The play is drawn from documents including Mother Jones’ autobiography, her letters, speeches, interviews and transcripts.
