Voices and Faces of the Past

When: Oct. 22-31 2013

I can't seem to find a copy of it around here, but I'm sure that in the Independent's 1904 Best Of issue, readers recognized the unionized miners of Cripple Creek as the Heroes of the Year. In the Cripple Creek Labor War of 1903-04, they fought the good fight — for an eight-hour workday, the right to organize, etc. — and seriously suffered as a result. Some of the close-up images in the Pikes Peak Library District's Voices and Faces of the Past exhibit, running through the end of the month at the East Library (5550 N. Union Blvd.), actually show them in bandages. Educate yourself for free, and pay some respects if you can. — Kirk Woundy
