Fight Like Hell is a definitive history of the labor movement and the people who risked everything to win necessities like fair wages and access to employment, a safe workplace, disability, and discrimination protections, and the eight-hour workday. Here, figures like “first lady of the coal mines” Ida Mae Stull, Latino farmworkers’ heroine Maria Moreno, queer Black civil rights icon Bayard Rustin, pioneering sex worker’s rights activist Margo St. James, Ford whistleblower Suzette Wright, and the indomitable Mother Jones get their due. Kim Kelly’s publishing debut is both an inspiring read and a vital contribution to American history, offering a transportive look at the forgotten heroes who’ve sacrificed to make good on America’s promises.
