Today is the 99th anniversary of the Triangle Factory Fire

Last March 25, we wrote a post on the 98th anniversary of the Triangle Factory fire, which claimed nearly 150 lives... Once again this year, volunteers have taken the time to walk around the neighborhood and honor the factory workers, most of whom were young immigrant women. Here's an NPR report from 2003 on the fire.

A reader also noted a service this evening in honor of the anniversary. Marc Ribot will be among the performers.

6:30 - 8:30 pm
