Detroit: I Do Mind Dying is a history of important (and yet not very well known) historical struggles of Black autoworkers in Detroit in the late 60s and early 70s (see description below), and SCSU professor Dr. Luke Tripp played a prominent role. Detroit: I Do Mind Dying tracks the extraordinary development of the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement and the League of Revolutionary Black Workers, as they became two of the most vital political organizations of the 1960s and 1970s. Widely heralded as one the most important books on the black liberation movement and labor struggles in U.S. history.
