Description

This is a ""Choice"" outstanding academic title. Work has always been central to the African American experience. Whether as slaves or freedmen, African Americans have struggled to gain economic opportunity. ""For Jobs and Freedom: Race and Labor in America since 1865"" analyzes the position of African American workers in the U.S. economy and social order over the past century and a half. This comprehensive study focuses on black workers' efforts to gain equal rights in the workplace and deals extensively with organized labor's complex and tumultuous relationship with African Americans. Highlighting the problems and opportunities that have characterized efforts to build biracial unions and forge a strong labor - civil rights political coalition, ""For Jobs and Freedom"" is an authoritative treatment of the subject of race and labor in modern America.
