Textile worker, labor activist, and protest balladeer Ella May played a central role in the Loray Mill strike of 1929, the biggest communist-led strike in United States history. Ella’s union involvement, ability to move audiences with her music, and her efforts to support desegregation and labor rights for African Americans at the height of Jim Crow made her a target of violence. Kristina Horton, great-granddaughter of Ella May, will discuss the 1929 strike and ongoing efforts to memorialize Ella May’s legacy, as well as her personal journey in discovering an unsung heroine in one of her ancestors.
