Jan. 18: “At the River I Stand” at East Side Freedom Library

Saint Paul Regional Labor Federation and the East Side Freedom Library invite you to watch and discuss the award-winning documentary film At the River I Stand in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The showing is 7 p.m., Monday, Jan. 18 at East Side Freedom Library, 1105 Greenbrier Street, Saint Paul.

This powerful, hour-long film tells the story of the Memphis sanitation workers who organized with a union in 1968 to demand a living wage, respect and their rights to bargain collectively. It was during this struggle Dr. King was murdered.
