Book: Working on the Dock of the Bay
Synopsis: In this finalist and runner-up for the South Carolina Historical Society's 2016 George C. Rogers Jr. Award, Thompson explored the history of waterfront labor and laborers – black and white, enslaved and free, native and immigrant – in Charleston, South Carolina, between the American Revolution and Civil War. The University of Tennessee (Chattanooga) associate professor American history explains how a predominantly enslaved workforce laid the groundwork for the creation of a robust and effectual association of dockworkers, most of whom were black, shortly after emancipation. In revealing these wharf laborer's experiences, Thompson's book contextualizes the struggled of contemporary southern working people.
