Join Amber and Erica Kim Brown, journalist, veteran activist, and our companion at Black Power Media to discuss the historical significance of Labor Day and the global fight against capitalist inequality. With a special focus on both the contributions of blacks to the pro-labor movement, as well as the justice and ownership challenges we still face, this episode reminds us that all labor has value that deserves respect and fair compensation. Listen to get the scoop on why we are all investing in and supporting a burgeoning labor movement.
