Capacity for Joy: Social Life of Malden Rubber Workers
7:00 PM
Virtual - Malden Public Library
Description:
Fancy balls in the Opera House along with baseball games at Cradock Park brightened workers' lives. The Converse Club hosted excursions in Boston harbor. Irish and Armenian immigrants joined social activities in their churches. Romances blossomed. And audiences applauded traveling performers such as the Jubilee Singers, a Black troupe from Tennessee. Such a robust social life helped build a dynamic workers' community.
