Witness to Revolution: The Story of Anna Louise Strong

Event Description

Follow the life of author and labor activist Anna Louise Strong in this sweeping documentary film.

As a reporter she covered the major political revolutions of the 20th century in Russia, Spain, and China. Her political vision took shape in the Pacific Northwest after witnessing the 1916 Everett massacre and chronicling the 1919 Seattle General Strike. Stay after the screening for a discussion with the film director Lucy Ostrander and local historian Stephanie Ogle.

Dive into labor issues past and present with representatives from the UW Labor Archives and Fair Work Center, who will be providing resources in the Faye G. Allen Grand Atrium before and after the screening.
