8-30-10: Across the Divide: “No, you got my job”

This piece originally aired September 16, 2009.

Eddie Bartee, Sr. worked at the steel factory at Sparrows Point for over 42 years. He was a union leader for many of those years and, as an African-American worker, was on the frontlines of the consent decree that integrated the factory on the heels of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Today we revisit Bartee’s story, aired last September as the first installment in our series “Across the Divide: Stories of Race in Baltimore.” Bartee reminisces about the first day the consent decree went into effect.

The “Across the Divide” series was part of Open Society Institute-Baltimore’s “Talking about Race” project. The Stoop Storytelling Series produced an evening of stories about race in Baltimore in February.
