For Black History Month we have created a short video history of the strike of African-American refuse workers in Memphis, during which Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated, and which began exactly 50 years ago this month .

Read a short history of the strike here.

Special thanks to Joanne Ball and Firas Kabous for production and animation of the video respectively.

Please subscribe to our YouTube channel today to get the first look at all of our upcoming new content.
