In this episode of Days of Revolt, host Chris Hedges speaks with two esteemed labor activists from Detroit: Darryl “Waistline” Mitchell and Roshaun Harris. They speak of the desperation caused by industrial decline and deregulation in Detroit, especially among Black people. The three also attest to the necessity and inevitability of revolt under such conditions.

  1. I think if there were ever to have been a black armed insurrection (notice I didn’t call it terrorism as Fox News would, but not the Bunds) it would have been in the 1960s, when there were clear, organized groups talking about militancy. There needs to be a central, organizing force and I don’t see that on the horizon.
