Description - Talking Union by Judith Stepan-Norris

As an institutional, political, and cultural oral history of the struggle to unionize the River Rouge Plant near Detroit during the 1930s and 40s, this book affords us a rare insight into the difficulties of organizing a union in the face of the then anti-union Ford Motor Company. Against a backdrop of the depression and entrenched racism, history was made by courageous individuals whose rich, eloquent stories illuminate the character and views of others like them across the nation, from all backgrounds: left, right, and center; black and white; native and foreign born, Jew and gentile.
