Race, gender, and union-busting violence all arise in this discussion of Debra Kopple's iconic Harlan County, USA. Documentarian Betsy Taylor and historian Alice O'Connor (UC Santa Barbara) offer expert perspectives into connections between events and figures in Kopple's film and broader environmental justice and labor struggles unfolding across the US in the early 1970s. In addition, Taylor's intimate knowledge of this mining area enables her to offer rich detail about the local landscape, corporate land ownership, and crooked politics that form the foundation of this classic documentary. Recorded on 10/16/2018. (#34290)
