SLATERSVILLE: America’s First Mill Village, directed by Christian de Rezendes, will be screened at the Museum on September 3 and September 4, 2021 at 1:30 pm. Slatersville will premiere on Rhode Island PBS in the fall of 2022. While the MoWC has hosted previous screenings virtually, this in-person event will combine two previously screened pieces, leading up to a newly edited piece. The stories are titled “The Wedding Present with 27 Rooms,” “Uncle Johnny”, and “Anything but Brotherly.” Admission is free. Reservations are encouraged. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating is limited to 45.
Museum of Work & Culture’s Labor Day Celebration is sponsored by the Rhode Island Labor History Society.
