Fighting Against the Whiteness of the Publishing Industry

Workers at Duke University are organizing under a foundation of combating racism in the publishing industry.

Featured on Workday, Tina Vasquez’s (@TheTinaVasquez) piece on cultural workers forming unions. From the piece:

“There are no black female managers at DUP. No Black women directors or editors. There are no Black women in jobs that would allow them to move up into career track positions. No Black women have been promoted in the last year. Two Black women have left the press in the last year, one not lasting an entire year at her position,” said one worker at the press, who wanted to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation.
