Stanford professor Estelle Freedman, editor of My Desire for History: Essays on Gay, Community, and Labor History by Allan Bérubé, will discuss Bérubé’s work and present a segment of his slide show highlighting one of the most radical and gay friendly unions of the 1930s-1950s.

“No Race-Baiting, Red-Baiting or Queer-Baiting!”
Allan Bérubé’s History of the Marine Cooks and Steward Union
