On Feb. 1, 1968, the rain was torrential, flooding streets, overflowing sewers. Still, the Memphis public works department required its sanitation workers (all black men) to continue to work. That day, 2 sanitation workers, Echol Cole & Robert Walker, took shelter from the rain in the back of their garbage truck. As Cole & Walker rode in the back of the truck, an electrical switch malfunctioned. The compactor turned on & they were crushed by compactor. The public works dept. refused to compensate their families. 11 days after their deaths, 1,300 black sanitation workers walked off the job, protesting horrible working conditions, abuse, racism & discrimination. Most of them made 65 cents per hour, no overtime, no paid sick leave. Click here to learn more.
