The UCSC Center for Labor Studies presents
A Lecture with Professor Will P. Jones
For Jobs and Freedom: The Negro American Labor Council, the 1963 March on Washington, and the Radicalization of Postwar Liberalism
Baobab Lounge, Merrill College
Thursday, February 14, 2008, 4:00pm
Examining the networks of socialist and feminist black trade unionists who initiated the 1963 March on Washington, Professor Jones offers fresh insight into an event typically viewed as either a triumph of liberalism or a bastardization of black radicalism.
William P. Jones is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He has written for journals including Labor History, Urban History and The Nation, and is author of the award-winning Tribe of Black Ulysses: African American Lumber Workers in the Jim Crow South.
The UCSC Center for Labor Studies is funded by the Miguel Contreras Labor Fund of the University of California Office of the President, and co-sponsored by the UCSC Division of Humanities and Division of Social Sciences.
