expand/collapse Expand/collapse E.1. Labor: History, 1973-1975.

22 interviews.

Interviews, conducted by the staff of the SOHP, focus on the growth and development of organized labor in the southeast from 1940 to 1975. Respondents include leaders of textile unions in the southeast and contain much information on individual strikes, organizing tactics, problems within the unions, and difficulties with mill owners. Some respondents speak generally about life in mill villages. Many of the interviews deal with labor education because the interviewees had entered the labor movement after college through working in union labor education departments.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse E.5. Labor: Civil Rights Unionism, 1976-2000.

79 interviews.

These interviews were conducted by Robert Rodgers Korstad, Lisa Hazirjian, Karl Korstad, and Lane Windham between 1976 and 1998. For the most part, the interviewees are people who were employed by the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company (RJR) in Winston-Salem, N.C., in the first half of the 20th century, especially during the 1940s. Many of the RJR employees were organizers, leaders, or members of the Food, Tobacco, Agricultural, and Allied Workers of America (FTA) Local 22. Other interviewees are employees who were not involved in Local 22 and who may have opposed the union. Also interviewed are RJR officials and FTA organizers who were not RJR employees, but who worked with Local 22 during the 1940s. There is a special focus on the work stoppages and strikes of 1943 and 1947. The purpose of this series of interviews was to understand the organization and actions of Winston-Salem's FTA Local 22; the living conditions in the African American community in Winston-Salem in the early 1900s through the 1940s; and the role played by the Communist Party in local events during this time. Interviews conducted by Lane Windham focus on FTA Local 10 in Greenville, N.C. Local 22 leaders and organizers were heavily involved in the organization of Local 10. These interviews were used in the following works:

  • Griffin, Larry J. and Robert Korstad, "Class as Race and Gender: Making and Breaking a Labor Union in the Jim Crow South," Social Science History 19 (Winter 1995): 425-454.
  • Korstad, Robert, Daybreak of Freedom: Tobacco Workers and the CIO, Winston-Salem, N.C. 1943-1950, (Ph.D. dissertation, UNC Chapel Hill, 1987).
  • Korstad, Robert and Nelson Lichtenstein, "Opportunities Found and Lost: Labor, Radicals, and the Early Civil Rights Movement," Journal of American History 75 (December 1988): 786-811.
  • Korstad, Robert Rodgers, Civil Rights Unionism: Tobacco Workers and the Struggle for Democracy in the Mid-Twentieth-Century South (Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, 2003).

interviews.

Interviews conducted by University of Washington at Tacoma professor and author Michael K. Honey between 1981 and 1998 as part of his research on southern labor and civil rights. This project focuses on the close relationship between labor organizing and the civil rights movement in Memphis, Tenn., and elsewhere in the South from the 1930s through the 1970s and 1980s. Many interviewees, black and white, were workers, organizers, and rank and file union members at the Firestone Tire and Rubber Plant in Memphis, Tenn.; others, especially Myles Horton (E-0177) had close ties to the Highlander Folk School in Monteagle, Tenn. Among other interviewees are life-long social justice and labor activists such as Hosea Hudson (E-0178). Topics include race relations at the Firestone plant before and after integration, red-baiting and other challenges unique to organizing in the South, women's experiences in industrial work and labor organizing, and occupational hazards at the Firestone plant. These interviews were used in the following works:

  • Honey, Michael, Southern Labor and Black Civil Rights: Organizing Memphis Workers (Champaign: The University of Illinois Press, 1993).
  • Honey, Michael, Black Workers Remember: An Oral History of Segregation, Unionism, and the Freedom Struggle ( (Berkeley and Los Angeles: The University of California Press, 2002).
  • Honey, Michael, Going Down Jericho Road: The Memphis strike, Martin Luther King's Last Campaign ( (New York: W.W. Norton and Company, 2007)

Some interviews include Mike Honey's notes and partial transcripts. The quality of these documents may be poor because of file conversion from older word processing formats.
