Tune in on June 1 at 7pm for a virtual and LIVE discussion between United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) President Cecil Roberts and Mine Wars Museum founding board member, Chuck Keeney, for Episode 2 of Mine Wars Forum.
Both President Roberts and Chuck Keeney are descendants of legendary labor leaders during the Mine Wars.
We’ll talk about the ongoing UMWA strike at Warrior Met in Alabama and how you can show your solidarity, his connection to the Mine Wars through his ancestors Bill Blizzard and Sarah “Ma” Blizzard, the Battle of Blair Mountain Centennial later this fall, a special building dedication ceremony being held in his honor in Matewan on June 12, plus more! You won’t want to miss this one.
This live session will end with a Q&A that audience members can participate in via Facebook Live or on the Museum’s YouTube Channel.
