What: ”May Day” celebrations
When: Monday, May 1
Where: Receptions will be held in the WVU Libraries’ Alumni Lobby, located on the first floor of its Downtown Campus location, from noon-1 p.m., and in the atrium of the Mineral Resources Building, adjacent to the Royce J. and Carolyn B. Watts Museum, on the Evansdale Campus, from noon-4 p.m.
Why: Monday, May 1, is traditionally a day of international worker solidarity. It is also believed to be the birthday of Mary Harris “Mother” Jones. Jones, a labor organizer in several industries, became most well known for her work with coal miners during an era of unsafe mining practices and few labor laws.
