Abstract

While the divide between "red" and "blue" states is often overstated, the Deep South has always lagged behind in union organizing. Yet there have always been exceptions, unions and organizations that have fought against great odds to build power for workers in the South, and with the accession of Trump, they can offer us advice for how to move forward when workers' rights are under attack and racism being fomented from the highest levels of government. Sarah Jaffe spoke with three labor organizers from the South about their experiences and what can be learned from their successes.
