We are pleased to have a new endorsement for Mike’s book: A Black Revolutionary’s Life in Labor; Black Workers Power in Detroit by Michael Hamlin with Michele Gibbs.

“Mike Hamlin writes with passion and clarity about his life as a revolutionary.  His memoir embodies the unique spirit and far-sighted views of the radical labor movement in Detroit.  His reflections on the successes and failures of the past are not offered as nostalgia but framed in a manner designed to be relevant to contemporary activists.” – Dan Georgakas

Dan Georgakas is a writer, historian, and activist, and co-editor of Encyclopedia of the American Left.  Dan co-authored the book: Detroit:I Do Mind Dying, with Marvin Surkin in 1975.  The work is an in-depth account of the history of the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement (DRUM) and the League of Revolutionary Workers in Detroit.  The book is now in its 3rd Edition and available from Haymarket Books. –
