Tuesday, September 17, 6:30 PM at Kelley Hall. The inspiration of this 1992 Disney musical was the New York City newspaper carrier strike of 1899 which targeted the powerful to demand rights for paper carriers. As a result, laws prohibiting children in the workplace (mills, mines, etc.) came into being, beginning the slow process of the protection of children and stopping the exploitation of minors as workers.
