In celebration and remembrance of May Day, the Historical Society of Forest Park will feature biographies about residents of Radical Row at various graves, as well as provide information about the Haymarket Affair and its monument. Weather permitting, we will display signs at individual graves from Saturday through Wednesday.

At 1:00 in the chapel, we will honor Larry Spivack, President of Illinois Labor History Society, this year's recipient of the Mark Rogovin Working Class Hero Award. Please join us in celebrating his contribution to labor history. Immediately following, we will unveil the plaque and dedicate the Dr. Joseph Carter Corbin Gravesite as a National Historic Place. The event will be hosted by John Rice, with speakers including Rory Hoskins, Mayor of Forest Park and Dr. David Ware, Arkansas Historian & Director of Arkansas State Archives.
