Join the Black History Awareness committee for a viewing and discussion of the 1970 film "Finally Got the News". Moderated by LCC Faculty Tim Deines.

"Finally Got the News" documents the League of Revolutionary Black Workers in Detroit's auto factories. Through movement members' interviews and scenes inside and outside the plants, the film shows the building of an independent Black labor organization. While the United Auto Workers Union ignored workplace problems, the League responded to Black and White auto industry workers' complaints about assembly line speed-ups and inadequate wages. A historical montage focuses on the crucial roles of Black workers in the US economy.
