Celebrating the Legacy of Black Labor this Labor Day

Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) entered into a dialogue with Elder Carlie Towne, the Minister of Information for the Gullah/Geechee Nation and Kwame Sha of All Mobile Productions™ (AMP™) about the history of Black labor and Black people in labor unions. They not only dialogued about the Brotherhood of Pullman Porters, they also discussed the International Longshoreman’s Union, the Communication Workers of America, and the historic Charleston Hospital Workers Strike and 1199.
