Revolutionary Teamsters

Published July 16, 2014 by Kirsten Delegard

The 1934 Truckers’ Strike in Minneapolis was a critical turning point for both the city and the nation. It shifted the balance of power in the city and emboldened the national labor movement at the depths of the Great Depression. To mark this anniversary, the Friends of the Hennepin County Central Library are hosting Canadian historian Bryan Palmer, who will discuss his new book: Revolutionary Teamsters: The Minneapolis Truckers’ Strikes of 1934. Other speakers will include Minnesota historian Mary Wingerd and authors William Millikan, David Thorstad and John Lauritsen. Doty Board Room, July 17th, Central Library, 6:30-9 PM.
