Episode 42 – Harlan County, U.S.A. (1976)

Making it work.

We’ve been on a run of excellent movies and Harlan County, U.S.A. is no exception. This 1976 documentary about a yearlong strike of coal miners in Harlan County, Kentucky is riveting, powerful, and one of the best depictions of collective organizing we’ve seen. A must-watch for every person out there who has to work to survive (i.e., most of us) and time to must-watch. (Also, we say to heck w/the both-sides-ism of later labor docs like the Obama produced American Factory. To heck!)

Also making it work.

Thanks to slfhlp for providing us some SICK BEATS for our intro and outro.
