PLAY  >  ” JOE HILL”  BY ALFRED HAYES & EARL ROBINSON

Joe Hill was an active member of the Industrial Workers of the World

(commonly known as the Wobblies) and was a writer of many fine union songs.

He was convicted of murder and executed in 1915 in Salt Lake City.

Many believe he was convicted unjustly, and he became a symbol of workers

who died fighting for labor’s rights.
