Playing Bigger Than You Are: A Life in Organizing

by Stewart Acuff
£9.99   paperback  Levins Publishing (2013)

Playing Bigger Than You Are: A Life in Organizing by Stewart Acuff The day-to-day story of Stewart Acuff's life in organizing, a life dedicated to justice for all. He is the foremost labor, trade union and grassroots organizer in the USA. Be it organizing citizens for stop signs at a busy intersection in Memphis, struggling (successfully!) to unionize the Atlanta Olympics, or guiding the nationwide organizing program of the AFL-CIO (the US equivalent of the TUC), we see in these pages a man with an uncanny mix of theory, compassion & courage. We see a man trying to hide his disappointment when campaigns go badly and heaping credit on others when success comes calling. We see a man living what his country preacher father taught him, that we area all, every one of us, are deserving of respect and dignity.
