From The Vault

Paci­fi­ca Net­work pro­gram­ming con­tin­ues with a spe­cial edi­tion of From the Vault this week, we share Paci­fi­ca Radio Archives’ con­tri­bu­tion to the Paci­fi­ca Labor Teach-in nation­al broad­cast. The Paci­fi­ca Labor Teach-in was intend­ed to stim­u­late dia­logue on impor­tant labor issues such as unions and mem­ber­ship, work­ing con­di­tions and employ­ee rights, and wage dis­par­i­ty between the rich and the work­ing class. Using a mix of his­toric record­ings from Paci­fi­ca Radio’s broad­cast lega­cy, this episode of From the Vault brings a his­tor­i­cal con­text into the labor discussion.

We’ll hear selec­tions from Paci­fi­ca doc­u­men­taries about the 1911 Tri­an­gle Shirt­waist Com­pa­ny Fire and the 1934 San Fran­cis­co Water­front Strike, sem­i­nal events in labor his­to­ry. We’ll also explore how May Day cel­e­bra­tions man­i­fest them­selves in dif­fer­ent ways here at home and around the world — as author and activist Sabi­na Vir­go weaves togeth­er the evo­lu­tion of May Day to include the fight for peace, equal­i­ty, and justice.
