On the 100th anniversary of the arrest of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, we at The Community Church of Boston, as part of our own One Hundredth Anniversary Celebration, present a commemoration of these two men. We present a panel of scholars and dedicated devotees concerned with keeping alive the public memory of these, our "patron saints". We will feature speakers, musicians, a film clip of the funeral procession, and an excerpt of a film documentary about the case.
