Book Description Whitmore Publishing Company February 1970, 1970. Hardcover. Condition: Collectible; Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Signed by Author. No marks or writing observed in text. DJ is good. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . About the Henderson, North Carolina Cotton Mills Strike in 1959. . . . . . . . Boyd Payton is most remembered for his work in the Harriet-Henderson Mills strike which all began in 1958. Payton went to Henderson, North Carolina to assist in negotiations between two local TWUA chapters and the Harriet-Henderson Mill. The strike began after the mill tried to revise the existing worker contract. The mill called in strike breakers, which led to violence across the mill community. There were 16 bombings, over 150 arrests and even Payton himself was assaulted. Union members felt that the textile industry was trying to subvert all unions. They were also unhappy with state government and policy after the Highway Patrol and National Guard were sent to protect strike breakers. Payton, along with seven other men, was arrested in June 1959 for conspiring to dynamite a Carolina Power and Light Company substation and planning to destroy two mill buildings. The only evidence the state had against Payton was a phone call in which he warned his caller that the phone was bugged. Payton was sentenced to six to ten years in prison in 1960. Evangelist Billy Graham, Harry Golden and Burlington Mills President Spencer Love proclaimed his innocence and called for his release by governor Terry Sanford. In 1961 Payton's sentence was reduced and he was released after having served nine months. Payton was eventually pardoned by Sanford. Payton wrote a book about his experience called Scapegoat: Prejudice/Politics/Prison. -- Wikipedia. Seller Inventory # 78592
