Person of the Day
On this Labor Day we remember the brilliant artist/ brave American labor leader. Hine spent his life searching out images the American people needed to see to understand the hidden sweatshop workers, coal miners and others, with an emphasis on child labor. He did this through the Progressive Era through the ‘30’s. The contribution he made toward ending child labor as well as the jaw dropping images make him a very special guy. Here’s to Lew.
