America is suffering through a crisis of economic inequity, and a crisis of racial inequity. But how do these things go together? And how can we build a movement that addresses both these urgent problems?

Fletcher has served as Education Director for the national AFL-CIO and as senior staff for a number of national labor unions. He has also served as president of TransAfrica Forum, as Senior Scholar with the Institute for Policy Studies, and as an editorial board member of He is author or co-author of multiple books, including Solidarity Divided: The crisis in organized labor and a new path toward social justice (University of California press, 2009).
