    AFSCME Local 1733 Sanitation Workers Strike, Memphis, 1968

    Sanitation workers in AFSCME Local 1733 in Memphis, Tennessee led a strike in 1968 to gain union recognition. The strike lasted for 65 days and garnered national attention as Local 1733's campaign for labor rights became fused with the struggle for civil rights. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lent his support to the strikers by visiting Memphis and leading marches. While there, on April 4, 1968, King was assassinated. The strike was settled soon after King's death.

    This gallery contains images of strikers, AFSCME staff and leaders, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s participation in the strike.
