Dr. William "Bill" Lucy

Posted by Unknown Friday, February 26, 2010

Also at the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference this week, I had the opportunity to talk with Dr. William "Bill" Lucy. This amazing man follows in the footsteps of the legendary A. Phillip Randolph who understood the connection between worker rights and civil rights. In my conversation with him he was knowledgeable about the work of Civil Rights leaders in Baltimore: Rev. Vernon Dobson and Dr. Homer Favor.

In fact he informed me that he was coming to Baltimore soon to talk with them about the "good old days." Dr. Lucy provided the muscle to the Civil Rights struggle led by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who knew that he could count on the people power of the labor unions. The Memphis garbage worker's strike was a labor union issue that became a civil rights concern of international renown.
