Peter Rachleff on the Creativity of Poor People [Video]

Yesterday, I interviewed Peter Rachleff a former Professor of History at Macalester College in St. Paul. He was one of the speakers at the River City Revue that I went to several weeks ago and talked eloquently about labor history in the Twin Cities.

Here he talks about how poor people in the Twin Cities have historically used the sawn ends and off cuts from the sawmills to build shanties.

The long form of this interview will be part of the Secret History archive.
