For several years I‘ve known this book to be a classic among the Left; finally reading it was truly a long time coming. DRUM & the League of Revolutionary Black Workers offer so many key lessons for trade unionists and other left activists today. As a UFT member, I‘m intrigued by the parallels between our union & the UAW, and how socialist organizers should engage with both the rank-and-file and the leadership. So glad I finally read it!

#bookhaul from Haymarket Books arrived just in time for me to pick up a bunch of extra hours at work. Maybe one day I'll actually get to read them.

Happy May Day. I want to let you know Haymarket Books is doing 50% off all books for the first half of the month in honor of laborers past present and future. Free shipping on US orders past $25. I plan to pick up tagged. Help support this revolutionary-minded publisher. They‘re really awesome. https://www.haymarketbooks.org
Oh and free ebooks. Lots.
How are you supporting laborers? Don‘t say by banging pots and pans together.

Some local #blackhistory reading today. Detroit: I Do Mind Dying is the story of black autoworkers in the 60s and 70s who gave rise to the League of Revolutionary Black Workers and the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement. This one came to me courtesy of my dad, who picked it up in the 80s as a young community organizer in Detroit and passed it on to me when I started community work in early 2000s Detroit. #riotgrams @bookriot #detroitlove #labor
