Honey, Michael Keith. BLACK WORKERS REMEMBER: An Oral history of Segregation, Unionism & the Freedom Struggle. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1999 Hardcover First Edition

First printing. Accounts gathered by the author over 15 years in Memphis Tennessee. Looked at as a whole, the stories demonstrate how black workers resisted apartheid in American industry and they underscore the active role of black working people in history. Rather than seeing the civil rights movement as one led by young people and preachers in the 1950s and 60s, the book argues that the freedom struggle was the product of generations of people, including workers who organized unions, resisted Jim Crow at work, and built up their families, churches, and communities. Photographs, reference and notes, index. 402 pp. Ex-library with relatively few markings, but overall tight and clean (appears unread) in a near fine unmarked dustjacket. .ISBN # 0-520217748
