February 9, 2014 @ 3 PM | Neag Lobby @ Nancy Marine Studio Theatre
Historian, Joe Manning will present his Lewis Hine project to Torrington and Litchfield, CT Historical Societies, as well as to the general public. This project is based on Lewis Hine's black and white photos of child laborers in the early 1900s and includes "newsies" in Hartford, CT.
This presentation will be done in conjunction with the Smithsonian's The Way We Worked traveling exhibit which the Warner Theatre will be hosting during this time.
CT Humanities has a goal of increasing awareness of The Way We Worked through ancillary events, exhibits, etc. The Warner Theatre will include historian, Joseph Manning and his Lewis Hine project in the events surrounding the exhibit. This project was based on Lewis Hine's black and white photos of the early 1900's depicting child laborers. Mr. Manning has researched and identified over 300 of these children whose photos are in the Library of Congress, contacted families and told their stories. We have asked that he share some of those stories and include stories of the "newsies" from Hartford CT in a presentation that will take place at the Warner's 300-seat Nancy Marine Studio Theatre on Feb 9. Mr. Manning's presentation will include visuals such as photo/story boards depicting Lewis Hine photos and children's stories.
The Way We Worked Exhibit will be closed from 1-3pm on Sunday, February 9, 2014 for a private event for members of the Torrington and Litchfield Historical Societies. The presentation itself, which will begin at 3pm, will be free and opened to the general public. Following the presentation, the exhibit will remain open to the public until 6pm.
