Flaming Milka was nationally famous. Trinidad's own rebel girl joined the Wobblies during the coal strike of 1927. She fought with the police, she led marches, she spent five weeks in jail.
When told she could be released from jail in exchange for a promise to stop her activism, she flatly refused, and remained behind bars.
When she was finally released, Milka toured the country giving speeches for the cause of the miners.
She moved temporarily to Duluth, Minnesota in February of 1928 to attend a Labor school.
That's where i've lost track of her.
Does anyone know any more about this brave young woman from the last century? Did she return to Trinidad?
Her full name is Amelia Milka Sablich. Her parents lived in Trinidad.
