Holocaust Museum Houston will host a screening of the documentary, A Strike and An Uprising! (in Texas), based in the telling of two events: the San Antonio pecan shellers’ strike of 1938 and the Jobs with Justice march led by Nacogdoches cafeteria workers, groundskeepers, and housekeepers in 1987. Anne Lewis explores both events in the same film, using the methods of oral history and by relating these stories strongly to contemporary ideas and events.

Lewis is an independent documentarian whose work reveals working class people fighting for social change.
