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