“Blood Runs Coal” & COVID + Healthcare Workers

The brutal murder in 1968 of Jock Yablonski and his family by United Mineworker president Tony Boyle sent shockwaves through the labor movement. Its impact inspired a surge in union democracy across labor’s ranks. This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll talk about it to Mark Bradley, author of Blood Runs Coal. Then, we’ll hear from respiratory therapists who have travelled to places where the pandemic is strongest to care for its victims. Their stories are riveting. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
