The American Negro Labor Congress

Established in 1925, the American Negro Labor Congress was a radical labor organization that remained in existence until 1930.

"The American Negro Labor Congress stands for a militant and uncompromising struggle against all forms of white ruling class terrorism: lynchings, etc. against the attempts of the employers to set one group of workers against the other in order to continue more easily their exploitation of both black and white workers. The American Negro Labor Congress stands for the right of workers to organize for self-defense."
