Purges Commemorative Meeting honoring the NYC Teachers Union.
As part of our Dreamers and Fighters Commemorative
Program honoring the Teachers Union at the
Wagner Labor Archives, we presented a panel called Children of the Blacklist. Several sons and
daughters of Teachers Union members participated – among them, Eric Foner, Joan Wallach Scott,
and Robby Meeropol.
This Web version will offer a forum for the sons and daughters of Teachers Union
members to tell their stories about growing up as their parents were being pursued during the
Board of Education investigations from the
of the 1930s to the
McCarran dismissals in the 1950s.
