Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1869, the nation’s first Black labor convention was held in Washington, D.C., with 214 delegates forming the Colored National Labor Union.
Today’s labor quote is by Frederick Douglass, who said:
"No man can put a chain about the ankle of his fellow man without at last finding the other end fastened around his own neck."
