A History of May Day
We Mean to Make Things Over: A History of May Day is a new half-hour documentary video. It’s a look at how May Day became the workers’ holiday all over the world except in the United States, despite the fact that the events that inspired the holiday occurred here.
Using historical images, contemporary illustrations, and animation, We Mean to Make Things Over is an educational and entertaining tour of a long-suppressed story from American working-class history.
We Mean to Make Things Over: A History of May Day is supported by the California Federation of Teachers’ Labor and Climate Justice Education Committee and East Bay DSA.
