The University of Illinois Press is pleased to announce that Dockworker Power: Race and Activism in Durban and the San Francisco Bay Area by Peter Cole has been selected as the first grant recipient from the Howard D. and Marjorie I. Brooks Fund for Progressive Thought. This internal fund was established in 2018 by William Brooks, professor emeritus of music at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of York, in honor of his parents’ lifelong commitment to progressive causes. Dockworker Power, an eye-opening comparative study of dockworkers in Durban, South Africa, and the San Francisco Bay Area, exemplifies the spirit of this Fund.
