household-workers-unite-how-black-domestics-orgainized-without-the-help-1440508892.jpgHistorian Premilla Nadasen, the author of Household Workers Unite: The Untold Story of African American Women Who Built a Movement (Beacon, 2015), will be joined by leaders of three of the organizations whose work led to the passage of the pioneering Massachusetts Domestic Workers Bill of Rights in 2014: Monique Nguyen Belizario of Matahari Women Workers' Center, Lydia Edwards of the Massachusetts Coalition for Domestic Workers, Natalicia Tracy of the Brazilian Worker Center;. The panelists will consider transformations in the occupation of household labor including the shift from a largely African American to immigrant workforce, the different historical contexts for domestic worker organizing, as well as lessons that current organizers and advocates can learn from earlier periods of activism. Rakesh Khurana, dean of Harvard College, will moderate.
