The Other Lost Cause: Southern Labor and Working-Class History

Lecture Description

The current weakness of organized labor in the South is often taken to mean that southerners are now, and have always been, naturally opposed to unions and the politics of class. This lecture surveys the rich and dynamic history of southern labor and working-class activism since the Civil War to counter this presentist assumption and offer fresh understanding of working-class politics in the contemporary South.
