I am intrigued by Lucy Parson's story, in part, because although I grew up in Illinois, I do not recall ever hearing her name associated with Illinois history. Edited by Gale Ahrens with an afterword by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Lucy Parsons: Freedom, Equality & Solidarity, Writings & Speeches, 1878-1937 includes "the ideas and opinions of Lucy Parsons in her own words" (2003, p. 1).

Themes identified by Ahrens (2003) as characteristics of Lucy's speaking and writing included a) the right and duty of the oppressed to defend themselves by any means necessary (p. 8), b) efforts by the capitalist injustice system at criminalizing the working class (p. 10), c) beliefs that a well organized working class movement could transform the world (pp. 12, 13), and d) discussions of racial and sexual equality, the struggles of the unemployed, freedom of speech and assembly, separation of church and state, child labor, women, and prostitutes (p. 13).

Three themes ran through Lucy's writings and speeches including a) differentiation of the upper and lower classes in oppositional terms, b) Haymarket, c) conscientization, and d) child labor, race, and women. Lucy's writings and speech are language rich with comparisons and contrasts.

Reading Mrs. Parsons own words helps you to understand the history of the labor movement in America and the struggle still taking place.
