Booknews
Taking one of the many strikes during the period as a case study, argues that the migration of black workers to northern US cities looking for work during World War I, and the practice and pattern of racial discrimination by the mainstream labor unions created a split labor market in which black workers had no choice but to scab on strikers. Focuses on community-level race relations during the strike, and also considers the impact of local governments repressing labor, the organizational strength of local union, and employers' efforts to inflame racial tension. Developed from a 1996 Ph.D. dissertation for Emory University. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
