#TuesdayThoughts: I wasn't able to be as productive as I wanted to be this year given an (often-ass-kicking) autoimmune disorder, but here's a thread of a few highlights.

As always, I remain so grateful to you all for your continued support.❤️
First, I am very proud of co-editing, with @m_hild, Reconsidering Southern Labor History: Race, Class, and Power. We had perceptive, brilliant scholars contributing essays on a wide variety of topics. Look for the paperback release in 2019!

Second, was absolutely honored to be asked to write a piece commemorating the life and legacy of #MartinLutherKing #MLK for the National Civil Rights Museum. I chose to write about #poverty and the #PoorPeoplesCampaign:

Proud of @SouthernLaborSA's Board - we stand in complete solidarity w @UNC's Black Faculty & brave graduate students in calling for the immediate removal of white supremacist #ConfederateMonuments like #SilentSam.

There is absolutely NO moral ambiguity here. Only right & wrong.
I hope this helps nudge other historical and academic associations to also condemn @UNC for plans to build a NEW #ConfederateMonument to house #SilentSam, complete with a private police force.
