Black Workers and the New Unions

Front Cover
UNC Press Books, Nov 1, 2010 - Social Science - 496 pages
This is a book for those who want to know what really happens when, in circumstances of enormous complexity and under the impetus of the New Deal, an irresistible drive for labor organization runs head-on into an immovably imbedded race prejudice. It is based on interviews by the authors with those people most intimately concerned.

Originally published in 1939.
