Black History Month (5) Detroit: Labor and Industrialization, Race and Politics, Rebellion and Resurgence

“In 1968, John Watson was selected as editor of Wayne State University’s Daily Collegian, which he changed to ‘The South End,’ in recognition of Wayne State’s location south of General Motors. He turned the newspaper into a resource for radical causes, tackling race and class issues on a daily basis. This included reporting on the wildcat strikes of DRUM and other similar revolutionary actions.” Source: Walter P. Reuther Library, Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs, Wayne State University 

Today’s post in honor and celebration of Black History Month is the compilation, Detroit: Labor & Industrialization, Race & Politics, Rebellion & Resurgence.
