Discussion with Dan Georgakas

April 29, 2013 - 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm (already occurred)

In 1970s Detroit, black autoworkers built a new model of labor and political organizing. The League of Revolutionary Black Workers and the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement (DRUM) sought to reform not only the workplace but United Auto Workers (UAW) itself, which they perceived to be racist and hierarchical. Marvin Surkin and Dan Georgakas documented the vision and struggles of these two organizations in "Detroit: I Do Mind Dying." This Monday, come join Georgakas for a presentation and an open discussion about unionism and labor activism in the greater context of black liberation.
