"Black Workers Remember expands what we know of the Civil Rights Movement," explained Jack Bregger, a member of the Murray Morgan Prize Selection Committee. "Through the voices and stories of the African American men and women who worked in Memphis, Tennessee's factories, Honey tells of a struggle for freedom that spans the 20th century -- a story which until now was all but invisible. Michael Honey effectively places these moving personal accounts in the more powerful context of social upheaval and, in a sense, cultural revolution. It insists, as Honey writes in the book's Preface, that we think 'about what it means to be poor, black, and working class, and to recognize the unfinished character of the struggle for racial and economic justice in our own time'. The ultimate success of this extraordinary book can be found in its intimacy and immediacy. The book shook me right down to my very core, and I know it did the same to other committee members."
