WORK Film Series: 10,000 Black Men Named George

In the 1920’s, the rights of American workers to join a labor union was considered an open question and African-Americans were routinely denied their civil and economic rights. The film portrays how forming the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters proved to have a major impact in both labor and race relations in America.

This event is free and open to the public.
