Workers on Arrival Book Description :

From the ongoing issues of poverty, health, housing and employment to the recent upsurge of lethal police-community relations, the black working class stands at the center of perceptions of social and racial conflict today. Journalists and public policy analysts often discuss the black poor as “consumers” rather than “producers,” as “takers” rather than “givers,” and as “liabilities” instead of “assets.” In his engrossing new history, Workers on Arrival, Joe William Trotter, Jr. refutes these perceptions by charting the black working class’s vast contributions to the making of America. Covering the last four hundred years since Africans were first brought to Virginia in 1619, Trotter traces black workers’ complicated journey from the transatlantic slave trade through the American Century to the demise of the industrial order in the 21st century. At the center of this compelling, fast-paced narrative are the actual experiences of these African American men and women. A dynamic and vital history of remarkable contributions despite repeated setbacks, Workers on Arrival expands our understanding of America’s economic and industrial growth, its cities, ideas, and institutions, and the real challenges confronting black urban communities today.

Moisture of the Earth Book Description :

Mary Robinson recounts her journey from picking cotton in rural Alabama to becoming an outspoken community leader and labor activist. The daughter of sharecroppers, Robinson came of age at the peak of the civil rights movement and took a job in J. P. Stevens's Montgomery plant when the textitle manufacturing giant was forced to admit African American workers. She soon became part of the historic organizing struggle by the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union, finding her voice as an outspoken activist and union organizer. This narrative is a behind-the-scenes account of union organizing drives in the South, from the vantage point of a black woman. Based on twenty-three years of interviews betwen Mary Robinson and oral historian Fran Leeper Buss, this book reveals the intertwined effects of race, class, and gender on the lives of lower-income women during segregation and after; sheds light on African American resistance movmements in the twentieth century and the roles of religious traditions and storytelling in struggles for social justice; and highlights women's important roles in community activism and the labor movement--From publisher description.

One More Step Book Description :

The colourful autobiography of extraordinary song-and-dance man Johnny Brandon, from tap-dancing in British music hall at the age of 11, to writing chart-topping singles and hit musicals. Johnny Brandon worked with some of the biggest names in show business, including Vera Lynn, Adelaide Hall, Jessie Matthews, Morecambe and Wise and Barbara Windsor in London. As well as writing hit songs for others, he released his own chart-topping singles in the early 1950s. But the 'Personality Kid' was more than a stage presence. His lifelong involvement in civil rights was underpinned by the 50 years he shared with his African-American partner, Robert Richardson. When they set up home in New York, Johnny immediately began writing hits for American stars, including Sarah Vaughan, Bill Haley and the Comets, Theresa Brewer and The Andrews Sisters, and musicals for some of the finest performers in American theatre. The zest for life and passion for music of the 'King of Zing' bring his story dancing off the page. But he returns time and again to the underlying themes that are most important to him: his admiration for and gratitude to all his 'black soul brothers and sisters', and his relationship with Bob. His deep love of all humanity, his fundamental belief that we are all 'family', regardless of race, colour, religion, sexuality or lifestyle, shine strongly through his narrative - the story of a white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant soul brother.
