The play premieres online at the LaborFest Saturday, July 17 – click here for free tickets – and LHT producer Patrick Dixon chats with playwright Howard Pflanzer about the debate and the issues.
The Meany Labor Archive’s Alan Wierdak and Mieko Palazzo explore the Fascinating and Complicated Legacy of Bayard Rustin.

The year was 1968. That was the day that the American Indian Movement began at a meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
