Black Power at Work: Community Control, Affirmative Action, and the Construction Industry
David Goldberg and Trevor Griffey (Editors)
Black Power at Work chronicles the history of direct action campaigns to open up the construction industry to black workers in the 1960s and 1970s. The book's case studies of local movements in Brooklyn, Newark, the Bay Area, Detroit, Chicago, and Seattle show how struggles against racism in the construction industry shaped the emergence of Black Power politics outside the U.S. South. In the process, "community control" of the construction industry — especially government War on Poverty and post-rebellion urban reconstruction projects — became central to community organizing for black economic self-determination and political autonomy.
