   schema:description "This long-awaited volume is the first set of annotated interviews of participants in the Civil Rights Movement undertaken by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. The Birmingham region was the citadel of heavy industry in the South and a domain of ruthlessly enforced segregation. It also had a long history of both industrial and craft unions, and large numbers of black workers were active union members. Among them were the men and women whose oral histories appear in Black Workers' Struggle for Equality in Birmingham. They recount vividly their own experiences with sharecropping, migration to the city and adjacent mining towns, all-pervasive police brutality, and their tireless personal and collective efforts to improve their lives and those of their children."@en ;
