The PBS series, American Experience, will premiere my new film, TRIANGLE FIRE, this coming Monday, February 28, 2011 at 9:00pm (check your local listings). On March 25, 1911, 146 garment workers died in a fire at the Triangle Waist Company. It was one of the largest workplace accidents in the nation’s history and few could deny that in the catastrophe lay a harsh truth: private industry had manufactured an industrial nightmare. From the ashes of the Triangle Waist Company arose the most sweeping and aggressive workplace reform laws in the nation and a powerful new conception of American government as an institution with a duty to guard the safety and dignity of its citizens.
I hope you can tune-in!
