Black Populists, Organized Labor, Cooperatives & Worker Control

1:1 co-founder Michael Peck was on a panel about union coops this week during the Labor Research and Action Network conference. One of his co-panelists was Jessica Gordon Nembhard, Ph.D. Professor at CUNY and author of Collective Courage: A History of African American Cooperative Economic Thought and Practice We wanted to share the slides from her presentation on Black Populists, Organized Labor, Cooperatives and Worker Control (PDF).

As an ally in the movement for racial justice, Michael notes that, in his view, “this presentation cements the relationship of African Americans to cooperatives and union cooperatives.”
