The Story of Ben Fletcher the Black Wobbly Dockworker Who Led the Most Powerful, Democratic Union of His Day
Peter Cole, author, Ben Fletcher: The Life and Times of a Black Wobbly

The discussion amidst a global pandemic makes a case for Fletcher's relevance to the most urgent political projects of the present. Fletcher, a Black man led an avowedly revolutionary union that forced corporations in Americas third-biggest city and fifth-largest port to deal with a union in which the great majority of members were African Americans and European immigrants. And they did it without ever signing a contract, instead enforcing their demands based upon the ever-present threat of a STRIKE!
produced by Mimi Rosenberg and Ken Nash
