Standing Room Only: A Discussion of Labor and Civil Rights

Play

“Labor and Civil Rights” was the theme of a discussion on November 4, 2015, with the Rev. William Barber, president of the North Carolina NAACP and founder of the Moral Mondays movement, and Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO. The discussion was part of Indiana University’s College of Arts and Sciences Fall 2015 Themester programming. Now in it’s seventh year, this Themester’s events were chosen to encourage exploration of the theme “@Work:The Nature of Labor on a Changing Planet.” Local attorney William Morris, who serves with Indiana Legal Services as well as the Bloomington Monroe County Civil Rights Commission, acts as the evening’s moderator. Our excerpt of this presentation begins with Reverend Barber.
