Order the Song, Struggle and Solidarity Book

Song, Struggle, & Solidarity
by Mark Abendroth

SONG, STRUGGLE AND SOLIDARITY: THE NEW YORK CITY LABOR CHORUS IN ITS TWENTY-FIFTH YEAR is the product of Mark Abendroth’s ethnography on the NYCLC during its calendar year from fall 2016 to spring 2017. Abendroth was in his sixth year as an active member of the chorus at that time.

“This exciting work of oral history … reminds us of when the U.S. labor movement was one of the “singingest” in the world. It shows compellingly what would be gained by making it that way again.” 

— David Roediger, co-editor of The Big Red Songbook, Chair of the American Studies Department at University of Kansas

“Music sustains a movement. The communal singing of protest spirituals and freedom songs empowered the civil rights movement. And the continued performance of labor songs, both old and updated, is vital to the preservation of the union movement…. Thanks to Mark Abendroth for having the foresight to chronicle the journey of this essential organization, singing these equally priceless songs.”
— Robert F. Darden, Baylor University
