Join leading labor scholars and trade union activists for a reframing of the relationship between race and labor in America. Through interdisciplinary approaches to the subject, panelists will consider significant economic, social, historical, and political conditions affecting racial stratification in union and non-union labor. Panels will discuss U.S. labor and race matters in relation to affirmative action, immigration, labor-community relations, diversity, globalization, anti-racist union efforts, union democracy, gender, and possibilities for social change.
