Over the next few months, this exhibit will tour a variety of schools, libraries and union events in Calgary, Red Deer, Lethbridge and Edmonton.

“The exhibit’s 13 banners, designed by Karen Mills with the support of the Alberta Labour History Institute, tell how Alberta workers responded during a moment of international unrest at the end of the First World War. An introductory panel sets the stage for topics that include: Seeds of Conflict, Workers Organize, Freight Handlers, Working-Class Life, Labour Conference, Winnipeg Strike, Coal Towns, Edmonton Strike, Strike Begins, Women Strike, Capital Strikes Back, and Lessons and Legacy.”
