Summary:Faced with a vicious right-to-work law, anti-picketing legislation and a poll tax, the Texas State AFL-CIO exercised some creative thinking on how to unify the elements continually divided by the prevailing power structure in that state. This film tells the story of how the Federation took the leadership in forming a working coalition of four important groups: Negroes, Mexican-Americans, independent liberals and organized labor. This film would be particularly useful in political education classes to emphasize the need for building alliances with other segments of the community.
