Lessons for activists from a California 'refinery town'

Hosted by

In his introduction to a new book Refinery Town, Senator Bernie Sanders says, "We need more cities like Richmond, California." He's talking about the adage that All Politics is Local, and Richmond is an example of what can happen when a poor, mostly black and Hispanic community gets political. The subtitle of Refinery Town is "Big Oil, Big Money and the Remaking of an American City." The author is Steve Early, a veteran labor activist who moved to Richmond from the East Coast five years ago.
