Here at the Lattimer Massacre Project we were excited to hear that a sculpture of the massacre will be dedicated at the National Labor College in Silver Spring, Maryland this April. The sculpture was made by Tim Turnbach of Scranton, who is a member of the UA Local 524. The dedication will take place on the Worker’s Memorial Day ceremony at the college on Friday, April 27, 2012. A schedule of events can be found here. Cecil Roberts, president of the UMWA will be present for the ceremony.
The National Labor College is the only college in the United States dedicated exclusively to the education needs of union members, leaders and their families. (website: http://www.nlc.edu/). It is located on the northern outskirts of Washington, D.C., in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Address: 10,000 New Hampshire Ave., Silver Spring, MD 20903.
