The May 4, 1886 bombing that shook the world

On May 4, 1886, someone threw a bomb in Chicago’s Haymarket Square.

Timothy Messer-Kruse, author of The Haymarket Conspiracy: Transatlantic Anarchist Networks, and Leon Fink, editor of the recently released Workers in Hard Times both recently appeared on Chicago’s WBEZ radio to discuss the Haymarket bombing, anarchism and the labor and radical political movements of the 1880s and beyond.
