In the late 1800s workers won the right to an eight hour work week. Since then leftist around the world have celebrated May Day. While the political holiday started in Chicago Illinois, it soon spread to the rest of the world. Now there are May Day celebrations all over the world and they are all celebrated as differently as the factions and trends that celebrate the day.
I am lucky enough that I can celebrate this holiday in Wichita, Kansas this year. The Peace & Social Justice Center will have an event on May 1, from 5 pm to 7:30 pm, at 1407 N. Topeka, Wichita, KS.
The event will include a Potluck.
