Anti Racist/Union Women N.C.

Share |
Description: Woman speaks at a press conference on the need for the Labor Movement to fight against the institutionalized racism in Boston, especially against those opposed to school integration. She encourages people to attend a rally against racism, to be held the next day on the Boston Common. A man from a labor union notes the endorsement of the rally by several higher up in his union. Woman condemns the Boston School Committee, especially Louise Day Hicks and John Kerrigan, for their anti-busing stance, which she says is racist and unfair for black and Latino children. People continue to speak for school integration, voices heard over blank screen. Women hang banner reading, "End Racist Attacks: Coalition of Labor Union Women." Additional silent footage of the press conference. Mix of sound and silent.
