We were saddened to learn of the passing of Moe Foner, "the labor movement's unofficial cultural impressario." (From the New York Times obituary). We met Moe over 20 years ago and have been privileged to distribute films which he and his union, District 1199/SEIU, New York's Health and Human Service Union, produced. Most notably of course I AM SOMEBODY directed by Madeline Anderson about the organization of hospital workers (mostly poorly paid black women) in Charleston, South Carolina in 1969.
