For the past eight years, Joe Manning has been identifying some of the more than 5,000 child laborers that were photographed in the early 1900s by Lewis Hine, and then tracking down and interviewing their descendants. Manning will show many of these historic photographs, tell the stories of the children, and talk about the exciting process of searching for descendants, most of whom were not aware of the historic pictures. $7 general/ $5 members
