FILM CLASSics: Norma Rae


Location: Browing Cinema

The Labor Question goes to the movies in our ongoing partnership with the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
The Higgins Labor Program's FILM CLASSics series features important films — at least one per semester -- that probe questions of work, class, economics, identity, politics, daily life, and solidarity. Whether old or new, celebrated or obscure, famous or forgotten, these titles merit presentations in a social setting and on a big screen.
