DSA Black Labor History Movie Day!
February 24 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Come enjoy the company of friends and comrades and learn about Black labor history in the U.S.!
DSA Labor Working Group is screening the movie “10,000 Black Men Named George,” which tells the true story of the formation of the first Black-led union in the country, The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, and its founder Asa Philip Randolph.
After the screening, Sherlyn Samuel, ATU all-star and leader of the local A. Philip Randolph Institute, will speak about Randolph’s legacy and APRI’s current work as the leading Black labor constituency group in the AFL-CIO.
We will have snacks and drinks! The event and snacks are FREE, but we will be passing the hat for a small honorarium to benefit the APRI, so bring a dollar or three if you can spare it.
Parents: this movie contains language and intense scenes probably equivalent to a PG-13 or R rating.
