The American South is often considered a bastion of reaction where progressive forces have never taken hold.  This view, however, obscures a long history of working class resistance and struggle. Joel, Destiny, and Alex will examine this history in order to identify patterns to inform contemporary perspectives on organizing the South, and illustrate why the Left as a whole should take this project seriously.
