The struggle for access to education has been a part of every major uprising for racial justice that Black people have engaged in throughout U.S. history — from the abolitionist movement, to Reconstruction, to the Civil Rights and Black Power. Jesse Hagopian will talk about social justice unionism and the fusing together of the labor movement with social movements for racial justice. Joined by a strong progressive labor movement, these overdue demands for greater social and racial justice can be achieved.
