      After 27 years on the police force, Neal Griffin turned to writing. His motive for choosing Vista as the setting in his newest book, “The Burden of Truth,” is his desire for authenticity.   This is a personal response paper I wrote following my reading this book. Personal Response: Sharecropper's Troubadour John L. Handcox, the Southern Tenant Farmers' Union, and the African American Song Tradition by Michael K. Honey Oral history is more than the transcription of a word-for-word interview/5(4).

      By Gabriel San RomanOC WeeklyFebruary 2nd, The suspense didn’t last long for about union workers, folksingers and fellow travelers who gathered on a recent Saturday morning at Liberty Hill Plaza in San Pedro to celebrate a hero of America’s class wars. A green, crumpled tarp covered a shimmering bronze tribute to labor’s troubadour: [ ]. Michael Honey teaches and writes about labor and civil rights history and the work and nonviolent philosophy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Honey has published five books and edited a book of King's labor speeches; has won the Robert F. Kennedy and numerous other book awards; and is a Guggenheim fellow and recipient of other academic awards.

    The songs in the book were all originals, written by members of the organization with the intent to promote solidarity, keep laborers fired up and lift the downtrodden spirits of the working class. Although his contributions didn’t appear until the edition, the songwriting of Joe Hill became synonymous with The Little Red Songbook.   The weekend of events to commemorate the strike were organized by the Remember 34 Committee, which brought together unions, labor activists, community members and descendants of the 34 strike. On J Bryan Palmer, author of the book Revolutionary Teamster, spoke at the Minneapolis Central Library, reading from his new book on the strike.
