Wobblies On The Waterfront: Interracial Unionism In Progressive Era Philadelphia
Book reading by Peter Cole
Cole in his important work looks at the organization of an integrated industrial workers union on the Philadelphia docks in the early 20th century. We learn about their democratic traditions and how this worked in their battles for equality and justice. Although this union was crushed during the witchhunts of the First World War, the lessons of this history are rich for today.
