Although the centenary is over, we continue to offer Joe Hill t-shirts, a book of Joe Hill’s collected writings, recordings of his songs by Fred Alpi and Bucky Halker, etc., and to add new events to our calendar (and to notify subscribers) as we learn of them.
May 2016 marks the centenary of the murder of labor and socialist organizer James Connolly. We are offering A Full Life: James Connolly The Irish Rebel, a graphic history of his life and legacy, on our products page.
