Restricted access

In Chapter 8, the University of Virginia serves as a case study of the challenges facing African American workers at an institution with not only stated commitment to racial diversity but also identifiable markers of progress in those areas. Through discussion of the political and economic battles of African American low-wage earners at UVA from 1969 to 2006, Claudrena N. Harold explores what, if any, progress has been made and holds that low wage African American workers’ concerns must be central to any movement for racial justice.
