Well-known Western North Carolinian Gary Carden will present the first showing of his new monologue “Mother Jones” at 6 p.m., April 7, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Franklin.
Lara Chew will perform in the one-woman show about Mother Jones, once considered to be “the most dangerous woman in America.”
In the late 19th century, to the chagrin of governments and robber barons, Mother Jones rallied coal miners, dock workers, endangered citizens, mill workers and disabused members of societies to protest against unfair wages, underage workers, poor working conditions, unhealthy living sites, poor government protection and unwarranted control of civil liberties.
Tickets are $15, and proceeds from the performance will benefit the UUFF Scholarship Fund. A reception celebrating Mother Jones’ 100th Birthday will follow the performance.
