The Battle of the Georgetown Mill 24.1.2018 American Prospect

His friends died, he won and lost union elections, and he challenged management to hire more black craftsmen. In later years, Green’s hips gave out, victims of contorting his body into crevices of the mill. His buddies called him Fred Sanford, after the television series’ title character, who wobbled more than walked.

With Donald Trump in the White House, the prospects for fighting climate change have never been any bleaker in the US.
