Abstract

In the United States of America, the fate of labor—its ability to win lasting gains, its success in sustaining solid organizations, its episodic periods of class consciousness, as well as its brief flirtations with broader class and independent political organizational forms—has always been closely tied to the issue of race. This is not only true today, but has been the case from the earliest colonial beginnings.
