The League of Revolutionary Black Workers were not your average superheroes. They were ordinary men, struggling to survive against the odds, against exploitation by white Corporate America. Move to Amend National Leadership member and revolutionary Jerome Scott discusses the League’s history, their contribution to solidarity organizing within Labor Unions, and what lessons from this history can inform today's revolutionaries building the movement for genuine democracy. Don’t miss out on this enlightening discussion!

Apart from his work with Move to Amend, Jerome Scott is active in Grassroots Global Justice and other social justice movement organizations, including the League of Revolutionaries for a New America. A labor organizer in the auto plants of Detroit in the 1960s-70s, and a community organizer, popular educator and author in the South since the 1970s, Jerome was a founding member and former director of Project South: Institute for the Elimination of Poverty & Genocide in Atlanta, GA. He is author/co-author of numerous chapters and articles on race, class, movement building and the revolutionary process, and is a contributing editor to four popular education toolkits including The Roots of Terror and Today's Globalization.
