Black Labor Week: History of the Labor Movement in Connection with the Civil Rights Movement

The History of the Labor Movement and the Civil Rights Movement will cover the history of labor, black labor and the intersection with the Civil Rights Movement.   The training will span from the emergence of the first large scale national union, the founding of AFGE, the civil rights era, and how the fight for labor rights and civil rights continue.  We are honored to have Rev. James Lawson, Jr.  join us as a panelist in a segment titled Then and Now.  Please join us to get insight on what we have been through, what we are going through and how we can make it through.
