Title

DRUM: Challenge

Creator

The Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement (DRUM)

Subject

Labor activism
Marxism–Leninism
Autoworkers
Detroit
Black activism

Description

As DRUM gained influence within the Hamtramck assembly plant, both management and the United Auto Workers (UAW) began a crackdown on the organization while denying that there were racist conditions in the plant. This issue of the publication argues that DRUM would not need to exist if there truly was racial equality. Beyond the conditions at the plant, racial oppression was evident in the murders committed by the Detroit police during the 1967 Detroit Rebellion and the exploitation of Black workers by large corporations.
