The Power of Remembering
This chapter talks about the voices of poor and working-class people that are only heard in the halls of government, in the media, or in the history books. Least of all heard are African American workers, who lived under laws and customs that sought to silence them. Yet they did make history. The chapter talks about how African American workers broke the silence imposed by segregation and gained recognition as agents of social change. It covers a period of time still within the bounds of living human memory, from the 1930s to the present.
