History Professor Dr. Peter Cole (previous guest from our IWW episode) joins Breht again, this time to discuss his fascinating new book Dockworker Power: Race and Activism in Durban and the San Francisco Bay Area. We discuss the labor history of dockworker unionism, the racial justice campaigns that workers in Apartheid South Africa and the United States partook in, the impact of these labor struggles on local cultures, proletarian internationalism, and so much more.
