Synopsis

The story of a black slaughterhouse worker who was part of the pioneering attempt to unionize the often fractious Chicago meatpackers at the end of World War I. But the post-war recession only increased the racial tensions already simmering within the slaughterhouses and stockyards and culminated in the Chicago Race Riot of 1919.
