I wanted to repost this message from H-Oral Hist regarding the new exciting project underway related to labor history.  This documentary is such a useful one and the interviews will be available in the future.

H-Labor Editor News

Dear H-Labor Subscribers.

Just a note to ask you to welcome our new H-Labor Editor, Thomas Castillo. Tom and I will be sharing the work for editing the list which means that there is the potential to reinvigorate the type of discussion, I think, upon which H-Labor was founded.

Tom's research and teaching interests focus on questions of class and power in African-American, Latina/o, immigrant communities.  Tom earned his B.A. and M.A. in History at Florida International University and a Ph.D. in U.S. History at the University of Maryland, College Park.
