UK PREMIERE. In 1934, hundreds of thousands of Southern textile workers participated in the largest single-industry strike in history. Many lost their jobs; some lost their lives. Dozens of southern communities are still living with the consequences of this largely unknown event. The Uprising of ’34 recalls how communities can be impacted by history and memory, long after an event occurs.
