The latest episode of the Labor Archives of Washington’s regular segment on the KSVR radio show We Do the Work is now streaming online via KSVR and Public Radio International’s Exchange.
This interview is with Conor Casey, Labor Archivist at the Labor Archives of Washington, and Evangeline Urcia, great-grandniece of Filipino American activist, poet, writer, and worker Carlos Bulosan.
The regular segment, called “Learn Yourself”, features Labor Archivist Conor Casey (Labor Archives of Washington, University of Washington Libraries Special Collections) being interviewed about a history topic by host Mike Dumovich with an emphasis on archival collections and secondary sources related to the topic in the hopes that it will inspire people to learn more about labor history on their own.
