A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. – Marcus Garvey
With Marcus’ quote in mind, on this date in 1911, the fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire claimed the lives of more than 100 women and two dozen men. If you want more detail, the book Triangle: The Fire That Changed America by Dave Von Drehle is a good read.
