1968 Memphis Sanitation Strike Documentary

1968 Memphis Sanitation Strike Documentary January 1, 2022

Although many of us have seen and read about the Civil Rights Movement and Dr. Martin Luther King, I suspect less of us know the context for the 1968 Memphis Sanitation Strike. This brilliant documentary helps rectify this lacunae. I recommend it highly, especially as we prepare for MLK Day this month. It includes interviews with sanitation workers employed during that period who participated in the strike.
