By Chris Garlock and Elise Bryant
Labor Heritage Power Hour
Broadcast on November 9, 2023

“Class is about power,” says professor Michael Zweig, whose new book, “Class, Race, and Gender: Challenging the Injuries and Divisions of Capitalism” will be out later this month. He’ll be at the Shirlington Busboys and Poets on Sunday, November 12 at 6p; RSVP here.
The summer blockbuster “Oppenheimer” generated a lot of interest in the history of how nuclear weapons were developed in the United States, but the film leaves out an important part of this history: the sacrifice made by tens of thousands of workers in the production of our country’s nuclear weapons arsenal. From the Heartland Labor Forum, a conversation with Tina Cordova, co-founder of the Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium.

Plus: The first integrated general strike in U.S. history, on Labor History in 2:00.
