Race, Gender, and Union Organizing in the USA: Lessons from the 1970s for Today

History@Work Lecture featuring Lane Windham, PhD

Lane Windham, PhD, is the Associate Director of the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor at Georgetown University. She is the author of the award-winning Knocking on Labor’s Door: Union Organizing in the 1970s and the Roots of a New Economic Divide. Lane spent 20 years in the union movement, including time organizing unions with textile and clothing workers in the United States. Her published works address issues of class, race, gender, economic justice, and the future of work. Currently, her research focuses on how working people can best build power within today’s shifting economy.
