Description

Have you heard of George A. Meyers? He organized 12,000 textile workers in Cumberland, Maryland. He was elected President of the Maryland-D.C., C.I.O. He was framed on trumped up charges of conspiring to overthrow the US government by “force and violence.” He spent nearly four years in prison. Freed, he dedicated his life to building the labor movement. Here is his story, No Power Greater: The Life & Times of George Meyers. With a Foreword by Fred Mason, retired President of the Maryland AFL-CIO.

How about attorney Bernard Ades? He risked his life on Maryland’s Eastern Shore fighting KKK lynch terror. He volunteered to fight Franco fascism in Spain. Or Dorothy Rose Blumberg? She spent four years in prison on fake “force and violence” charges. She helped us win race and gender equality, voting rights, and the defeat of Hitler fascism. What about Joe Henderson, Meyers’ closest friend? Joe was an African American organizer who recruited 1,300 steelworkers into the United Steelworkers Union. The witch hunters blacklisted him.

The billionaires want you to forget these leaders, all members of the Maryland Communist Party. All part of the story that is The Life & Times of George Meyers.
