The updates have been weak as of late because something that we want to post that will be beatiful is not ready yet and it is driving us nuts.
So, interim updates and a slight request:
First, not one, not two, not three, not four, but five new articles:

  1. First, Genora (Johnson) Dollinger Remembers the 1936-37 General Motors Sit-Down Strike

  2. Fannie Lou Hamer speaks about organizing for Civil Rights in the South and the role of the State (and police)

  3. Women in Prison: How It Is With Us, Assata Shakur's essay on Women in Prison

  4. Lynch Law By Ida B. Wells

  5. And then, finally, The Crime of Poverty by Henry George

All are excellent and were inspired by Zinn and Arnove's Voices of a People's History of the United States.

In other page-related news, a quick question. We've been debating the style to feature the content in the various "Chapters" on the main page. If you look at them, there are several different styles: a big block of titles, author and title on opposite sides, author below and to the right of title. Is there consensus on any of them being better? Tomorrow, America votes. Feel free to vote with History Is A Weapon on which style you like best.
