Fight or Be Slaves, the title taken from a statement by C.L. Dellums, Oakland's vice president of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, sets East Bay labor history in context of national events using extensive primary and secondary sources. Sensitive to issues of class, race, and gender, Fight or Be Slaves is filled with vignettes that bring to life the story of workers in struggle.

About the Author:

Albert Vetere Lannon is the Chair of the Labor Studies department at Laney College in Oakland, California.

Review:

'Fight or Be Slaves' is a lively, colorful, anecdotal and encyclopedic account of the East Bay labor movement from its early beginnings to the present. . . It's an honest book and not a white wash. It deals with bureaucracy and corruption which does exist in the labor movement. (Harri Siitonen New World Finn)
