Rice & Roses : This Is the ILWU reel 2

Continued from title 29740. Using member-made film footage, president of the International Longshore Warehouse Union (ILWU) Anthony "Tony" Rania takes an in-depth look at the sugar strike of 1958 in Hawaiʻi. We get an inside look at how ILWU made sure that their members were cared for during the strike, by setting up strike kitchens that fed the membership and their families, busing children to school, and keeping essential services operational for the community. Recorded circa 1958.
