The American South has a reputation as a union-free zone, but many significant labor battles were fought there. The 1934 textile-workers walkout, in fact, was the largest single-industry strike in U.S. history—a half-million workers participated. The Uprising of ’34, a documentary by George Stoney, Judith Helfand, and Suzanne Rostock, examines that action and its contemporary legacy. At noon at the National Archives Theater, 7th & Pennsylvania Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 501-5000. (Mark Jenkins)
