Professor Howard Stanger from Canisius College, an expert on labor history, is guest speaker at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday in the IMAGINE Buffalo lunchtime lecture series in the Central Library on Lafayette Square in downtown Buffalo.
The program begins at noon in the Ring of Knowledge on the library’s main floor with a Great Courses video on “The 1892 Homestead Strike.” The strike was a landmark in union-busting efforts, when Andrew Carnegie went to war with his steelworkers at a plant near Pittsburgh to cut their wages.
Admission is free. Guests can bring a lunch or buy one at the library’s Fables Cafe. The series is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Art & Architecture, History and Nature.
