Give Us Bread (Paperback)


Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

Food prices shot up overnight. Starvation threatened families from Williamsburg, Brooklyn to the Lower East Side to the Bronx. The city did nothing. A group of women came together to demand action. Boycotts accelerated into riots. The year was 1917.

Using primary source materials, historical archives and original text, Give Us Bread tells the remarkable true story of immigrant women who united to feed their families and a city. An ensemble drama for six performers.

This publication features archival photos, recollections from the family of Marie Ganz and an interview with academic and activist Raj Patel.
