Also, this year is the 125th anniversary of the Homestead Strike, and there will be a screening of The River Ran Red about the 1872 Homestead Steel Works strike in Pennsylvania. Andrew Carnegie and the other owners of the steel mill brought in Pinkerton gun thugs to break the strike and the union. This struggle was a lesson on how the robber barons treated their workers and kept their power.
