This book by Philip Foner recounts the radical history of Black workers in the American labor movement between 1619 and 1981. While these movements may be traditionally framed as white-dominated, they were actually led largely by workers of color. This serves as an important reminder that the "working class" is not just white, but it is strongly led by Black workers and union members.
