The Real Mother Jones
Program #GARS003. Recorded in Boulder, CO on January 26, 1994.
Mary Harris Jones, (1830-1930), widely known as Mother Jones, achieved fame by her role in organizing textile workers in Pennsylvania and coal miners in West Virginia and Colorado. Her radicalism resulted in frequent jailings. She was a fiery speaker and a crusader against child labor. Her imprisonment during the historic 1912-13 mine strikes in Colorado brought nationwide attention to the labor struggle.
