Event Details



 Film showing and discussion led by Anthony Riccio (author of "The Italian American Experience in New Haven: Images and oral History" and "Cooking with Chef Silvio: Stories & Authentic Recipes of Campania")  and Troy Rondinone (Associate Professor of History and Secondary Education Social Studies Certification Co-Coordinator at Southern Connecticut State University)

This remarkable documentary by the late George Stoney and his former student, Judith Helfand, depicts the events of the Southern Textile Strike of 1934. It includes a powerful section about a horrific event at Chiquola Mill in Honea Path, South Carolina, where the mayor who was also superintendent of the mill organized gunmen to fire their weapons at the striking workers, killing seven men. According to Frank Beacham, the grandson of the mayor/ mill owner, “when I was growing up in Honea Path during the 1960s, the subject of the mill violence was taboo…I learned the truth about Honea Path’s history in 1994 from a rough-cut of Stoney’s film.”


Co-Sponsored with The Greater New Haven Labor Association
