Close to Home: 1916 Mesabi Range Strike

Dec 16, 2016

There is a new temporary 

exhibit at the Minnesota Discovery Center in Chisholm that tells the story of the 1916 Mesabi Iron Range strike.  It was a bitter and bloody struggle of a largely immigrant workforce battling  the worlds first billion dollar company for fair wages and fair working conditions.  Host Grant Frashier talks with Minnesota Discovery Center Curator Allyse Freeman about the strike and the exhibit.
