Future of America's Past

The Fire Of A Movement

Season 1, Episode 2 of 4

On March 25, 1911, New York City's Triangle Shirtwaist Factory burst into flames, and 146 workers - nearly all young women, many of them teenage immigrants - perished. We visit the building and learn how public outcry inspired workplace safety laws that revolutionized industrial work nationwide. Descendants and activists show us how that work reverberates today.
