Description

"Talking union still amounts to a punishable offense in part of the Old South," reports the Nation. The story looks at the troubles faced by a union of black dockworkers in Charleston, South Carolina. The article describes how workers belonging to the union, a branch of the International Longshoremen's Association Local 1422, have been treated like criminals, clubbed by police, arrested and charged with riot, conspiracy and assault.
