Brief Description of

“Jeffrey B. Perry National Postal Mail Handlers Union Records, 1968-2007”
At Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia

“A very important archive of grassroots labor activity and example of anti white supremacist organizing in the working class.”


On December 6, 2017, Emory University posted an online Finding Aid for the recently acquired “Jeffrey B. Perry National Postal Mail Handlers Union Records, 1968-2007.” This large (119 linear feet) collection was assembled and preserved by Dr. Jeffrey B. Perry, a long-time postal worker and steward, officer, and editor in Local 300 of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union (div. of LIUNA).

This important archive of anti white supremacist organizing in the working class is now available to labor activists, historians, scholars, and others. Brief supplemental materials – subject and name indexes, chronology, and bibliography -- are available online. The archive and the supplemental materials can contribute to current and future scholarship and organizing work and can encourage other labor activists to similarly place their Papers, records, and archives with repositories.

Perry worked for the United States Postal Service from 1974-2007, where he was assigned to the approximately 4,000-worker New Jersey International & Bulk Mail Center (NJI&BMC) in Jersey City, NJ (the third largest postal facility in the country). He was a member of Local 300, National Postal Mail Handlers Union (NPMHU), a division of Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA) from 1974-2007 and a member of the New York Metro Local of the American Postal Worker Union (APWU) from 1974-1978. During his postal years he was a Mail Handler Shop Steward (beginning in 1974), Administrative Vice-President of the NJIBMC from (1984-1988), and Treasurer of Local 300 (1988-2007). He was also editor of the rank and file publication The Alternative at the NJIBMC (1974-1984), of the Mailhandlers’ Voice at the NJIBMC (1984-1988), of the NPMHU national office’s The Mail Handler (1988-1989), and of Local 300’s Focus and Local 300 Mail Handler News (1988-2007).

While the materials collected throughout the entire period of 1974-2007 are wide-ranging, there are three noteworthy periods of concentration: 1) work at the workplace level (1974-1988); work at the National Union level (1988-1991); and work at the Local Union level (1988-2007).

The workplace level materials from 1974-1988 detail effective work done at the NJI&BMC drawing on the concept of the centrality of struggle against white supremacy to labor and workplace organizing. Included in this section are materials dealing with: worker grievances; contract struggles; health and safety issues; rank and file movements and debates (including those with “Outlaw”); postal strikes (including those of 1970, 1974, and the 1978 “Battle of the Bulk”); union elections; work with the NJ Anti-Apartheid Coalition and the Rainbow Coalition; work challenging discrimination in the USPS; work challenging the Columbia Association; and work with the Association for Union Democracy. Particularly noteworthy are the materials from 1984-1988 when an effort was made, with considerable success, to build a strong, progressive, involved union membership at the branch level that consistently spoke out on worker issues and against white supremacy and male supremacy. There is extensive correspondence and there are numerous, publications, documents, photos, videos, etc., from this period.

The National Union materials from 1988-1991 document an intense period of struggle between the National Postal Mail Handlers Union and LIUNA (its organized crime-influenced parent union) and include important research on the Tisch family’s relation to the CNA Insurance Company, which administered the Mail Handler Benefit Plan (at a time when Preston Tisch was Postmaster General). There is also important information on the functioning of the National Union’s overall work including board meetings, committee meetings, contract preparation, mobilization, and negotiations. Materials from this period include publications, documents, correspondence, court filings and related research, photos, videos, national conventions, contract negotiations, etc.

The Local Union level materials from 1988-2007 focus on a wide range of Local and National Postal Mail Handler Union issues. They include publications, documents, correspondence, photos, videos, national conventions, contract negotiations, election campaign literature, arbitrations, postal protests, executive board and executive council meetings, etc. They also include information on a Trade Union Delegation to the West Bank and Gaza, on work with Labor Notes, on work with the Labor Party, and on work with the New York City and the Bergen County Central Labor Councils.

Dr. Jeffrey B. Perry, whose roots are entirely working class, started working at age eleven and was formally educated at Princeton, Harvard, Rutgers, and Columbia. He is an independent historian, speaker, activist, and archivist focusing on working class struggles and on the centrality of struggle against white supremacy to struggles for radical social change. His writings and public speaking pay special attention to two of the twentieth century’s most important thinkers on race and class -- the anti-white supremacist working class intellectuals Hubert Harrison (“The Father of Harlem Radicalism” and founder of the militant “New Negro Movement”) and Theodore W. Allen (pioneer of class-struggle based “white skin privilege” analysis and author of The Invention of the White Race). Perry placed the Hubert H. Harrison Papers at Columbia University and he is preparing the remainder of his non-postal papers – on Hubert Harrison, on Theodore W. Allen, and on new and old left material and his own personal activism – for placement with a major repository. He is also working on volume two of his biography of Hubert Harrison.

Brief Draft Bibliography (1) Of A Small Part of the Jeffrey B. Perry National Postal Mail Handlers Union Records, 1968-2007
(Roughly in Author, Year, and Title Format)


On December 6, 2017, Emory University posted an online Finding Aid for the recently acquired “Jeffrey B. Perry National Postal Mail Handlers Union Records, 1968-2007.” This large (119 linear feet) collection was assembled and preserved by Dr. Jeffrey B. Perry, a long-time postal worker and steward, officer, and editor in Local 300 of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union (div. of LIUNA). It has been described as “A very important archive of grassroots labor activity and example of anti white supremacist organizing in the working class.”

This important archive is now available to labor activists, historians, scholars, and others. Brief supplemental materials – subject and name indexes, chronology, and bibliography -- are available online. The archive and the supplemental materials can contribute to current and future scholarship and organizing work and can encourage other labor activists to similarly place their Papers, records, and archives with repositories.

Brief Draft Chronology For Use With
Jeffrey B. Perry National Postal Mail Handlers Union Records, 1968-2007


On December 6, 2017, Emory University posted an online Finding Aid for the recently acquired “Jeffrey B. Perry National Postal Mail Handlers Union Records, 1968-2007.” This large (119 linear feet) collection was assembled and preserved by Dr. Jeffrey B. Perry, a long-time postal worker and steward, officer, and editor in Local 300 of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union (div. of LIUNA). It has been described as “A very important archive of grassroots labor activity and example of anti white supremacist organizing in the working class.”

This important archive of anti white supremacist organizing in the working class is now available to labor activists, historians, scholars, and others. Brief supplemental materials – subject and name indexes, chronology, and bibliography -- are available online. The archive and the supplemental materials can contribute to current and future scholarship and organizing work and can encourage other labor activists to similarly place their Papers, records, and archives with repositories.

115,000 VIEWS -- This Video on Theodore W. Allen’s “The Invention of White Race” Has Just Passed the 115,000-Views Mark. It opens with some insights from the life and work of Hubert Harrison.

Please take time to watch the video, to share it with friends, and to call the work of Theodore W. Allen and Hubert Harrison to the attention of others.

Theodore W. Allen’s “Invention of the White Race” has been referred to as a “classic” by historians Nell Painter, Gerald Horne, Wilson J. Moses, and Gregory Meyerson and by social anthropologist Audrey Smedley.

Labor historian Joe Berry says it “is one of the most important books of U.S history ever written.”

Historian Mark Solomon of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research, Harvard University, says, “The profound insights in ‘The Invention of the White Race’ are essential both to understand the origins and destructiveness of white supremacy and to provide the means to conduct struggle against it. Allen’s study is mandatory reading for everyone concerned with justice, equality and the liberation of all from the binds of white supremacy.”

Long time activist Carl Davidson emphasizes that “You simply can’t understand America and who we are without this [“The Invention of the White Race”] book.”

Special thanks to those who contributed to the book launch event that was the basis of this video on Allen’s “The Invention of the White Race” – including filmmaker Fred Nguyen; Muriel Tillinghast and Sean Ahern of “The Hubert Harrison and Theodore W. Allen Society”; Kazembe Balagun, Max Uhlenbeck, and Liz Mestres of the Brecht Forum; and Jessica Turner of Verso Books.

Allen on the Centrality of the Fight Against White Supremacy

Theodore W. Allen

Theodore W. “Ted” Allen (1919-2005) was an anti-white supremacist, working class intellectual and activist. He developed his pioneering class struggle-based analysis of “white skin privilege” beginning in the mid-1960s; authored the seminal two-volume The Invention of the White Race in the 1990s; and consistently maintained that the struggle against white supremacy was central to efforts at radical social change in the United States.

Born on August 23, 1919, in Indianapolis, Indiana, he grew up in Paintsville, Kentucky and Huntington, West Virginia (where he graduated from high school), and then went into the mines and became a United Mine Workers Local President. After hurting his back in the mines he moved to New York City and lived his last fifty-plus years in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn.

The Invention of the White Race

Allen's two-volume The Invention of the White Race (1994, 1997: Verso Books, new expanded edition 2012) with its focus on racial oppression and social control is one of the twentieth-century's major contributions to historical understanding. It presents a full-scale challenge to what he refers to as "The Great White Assumption" -- the unquestioning acceptance of the "white race" and "white" identity as skin color-based and natural attributes rather than as social and political constructions. Its thesis on the origin, nature, and maintenance of the "white race" and its understanding that slavery in the Anglo-American plantation colonies was capitalist and enslaved Black laborers were proletarians, contain the basis of a revolutionary approach to United States labor history.

On the back cover of the 1994 edition of Volume 1, subtitled Racial Oppression and Social Control, Allen boldly asserted "When the first Africans arrived in Virginia in 1619, there were no 'white' people there; nor, according to the colonial records, would there be for another sixty years." That statement, based on 20-plus years of primary research in Virginia's colonial records, reflected the fact that Allen found no instance of the official use of the word "white" as a token of social status prior to its appearance in a Virginia law passed in 1691. As he later explained, "Others living in the colony at that time were English; they had been English when they left England, and naturally they and their Virginia-born children were English, they were not 'white.' White identity had to be carefully taught, and it would be only after the passage of some six crucial decades" that the word "would appear as a synonym for European-American."

In this context he offers his major thesis -- that the "white race" was invented as a ruling class social control formation in response to labor solidarity as manifested in the latter (civil war) stages of Bacon's Rebellion (1676-77). To this he adds two important corollaries: 1) the ruling elite deliberately instituted a system of racial privileges to define and maintain the "white race" and to implement a system of racial oppression, and 2) the consequence was not only ruinous to the interest of African Americans, it was also disastrous for European-American workers.

In Volume II, on The Origin of Racial Oppression in Anglo-America, Allen tells the story of the invention of the “white race” and the development of the system of racial oppression in the late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century Anglo-American plantation colonies. His primary focus is on the pattern-setting Virginia colony, and he pays special attention to the reduction of tenants and wage-laborers in the majority English labor force to chattel bond-servants in the 1620s. In so doing, he emphasizes that this was a qualitative break from the condition of laborers in England and from long established English labor law, that it was not a feudal carryover, that it was imposed under capitalism, and that it was an essential precondition of the emergence of the lifetime hereditary chattel bond-servitude imposed upon African-American laborers under the system of racial slavery.

Allen describes how, throughout much of the seventeenth century, the status of African-Americans was indeterminate (because it was still being fought out) and he details the similarity of conditions for African-American and European-American laborers and bond-servants. He also documents many significant instances of labor solidarity and unrest, especially during the 1660s and 1670s. Of great significance is his analysis of the civil war stage of Bacon’s Rebellion when thousands of laboring people took up arms against the ruling plantation elite, the capital (Jamestown) was burned to the ground, rebels controlled 6/7 of the Virginia colony, and Afro- and Euro-American bond-servants fought side-by-side demanding an end to their bondage.

It was in the period after Bacon's Rebellion that the “white race” was invented as a ruling-class social control formation. Allen describes systematic ruling-class policies, which conferred “white race” privileges on European-Americans while imposing harsher disabilities on African-Americans resulting in a system of racial slavery, a form of racial oppression that also imposed severe racial proscriptions on free African-Americans. He emphasizes that when free African-Americans were deprived of their long-held right to vote in Virginia and Governor William Gooch explained in 1735 that the Virginia Assembly had decided upon this curtailment of the franchise in order "to fix a perpetual Brand upon Free Negros & Mulattos," it was not an "unthinking decision." Rather, it was a deliberate act by the plantation bourgeoisie and was a conscious decision in the process of establishing a system of racial oppression, even though it entailed repealing an electoral principle that had existed in Virginia for more than a century.

Key to understanding the virulent racial oppression that develops in Virginia, Allen argues, is the formation of the intermediate social control buffer stratum, which serves the interests of the ruling class. In Virginia, any persons of discernible non-European ancestry after Bacon's Rebellion were denied a role in the social control buffer group, the bulk of which was made up of laboring-class "whites." In the Anglo-Caribbean, by contrast, under a similar Anglo- ruling elite, "mulattos" were included in the social control stratum and were promoted into middle-class status. This difference was rooted in a number of social control-related factors, one of the most important of which was that in the Anglo-Caribbean there were “too few” poor and laboring-class Europeans to embody an adequate petit bourgeoisie, while in the continental colonies there were '’too many’' to be accommodated in the ranks of that class.

In The Invention of the White Race Allen challenges what he considers to be two main ideological props of white supremacy -- the argument that "racism" is innate (and it is therefore useless to challenge it) and the argument that European-American workers “benefit” from "white race" privileges and white supremacy (and that it is therefore not in their interest to oppose them). These two arguments, opposed by Allen, are related to two master historical narratives rooted in writings on the colonial period. The first argument is associated with the “unthinking decision” explanation for the development of racial slavery offered by historian Winthrop D. Jordan in his influential White Over Black: American Attitudes Toward the Negro, 1550-1812. The second argument is associated with historian Edmund S. Morgan’s influential American Slavery, American Freedom: The Ordeal of Colonial Virginia, which maintains that in Virginia, as slavery developed in the eighteenth century, “there were too few free poor [European-Americans] on hand to matter.” Allen points out that what Morgan said about “too few” free poor was true in the eighteenth century Anglo-Caribbean, but not in Virginia.

“white race” privilege

The article "The Developing Conjuncture and Some Insights From Hubert Harrison and Theodore W. Allen on the Centrality of the Fight Against White Supremacy" (Cultural Logic, 2010) describes key components of Allen's analysis of "white race" privilege. The article explains that as he developed the "white race" privilege concept, Allen emphasized that these privileges were a "poison bait" (like a shot of “heroin”) and he explained that they "do not permit" the masses of European American workers nor their children "to escape" from that class. "It is not that the ordinary white worker gets more than he must have to support himself," but "the Black worker gets less than the white worker." By, thus "inducing, reinforcing and perpetuating racist attitudes on the part of the white workers, the present-day power masters get the political support of the rank-and-file of the white workers in critical situations, and without having to share with them their super profits in the slightest measure."

As one example, to support his position, Allen provided statistics showing that in the South where race privilege "has always been most emphasized . . . the white workers have fared worse than the white workers in the rest of the country."

Probing more deeply, Allen offered additional important insights into why these race privileges are conferred by the ruling class. He pointed out that "the ideology of white racism" is "not appropriate to the white workers" because it is "contrary to their class interests." Because of this "the bourgeoisie could not long have maintained this ideological influence over the white proletarians by mere racist ideology." Under these circumstances white supremacist thought is "given a material basis in the form of the deliberately contrived system of race privileges for white workers."

Thus, writes Allen, "history has shown that the white-skin privilege does not serve the real interests of the white workers, it also shows that the concomitant racist ideology has blinded them to that fact."

Allen added, "the white supremacist system that had originally been designed in around 1700 by the plantation bourgeoisie to protect the base, the chattel bond labor relation of production" also served "as a part of the 'legal and political' superstructure of the United States government that, until the Civil War, was dominated by the slaveholders with the complicity of the majority of the European-American workers." Then, after emancipation, "the industrial and financial bourgeoisie found that it could be serviceable to their program of social control, anachronistic as it was, and incorporated it into their own 'legal and political' superstructure."

Allen felt that two essential points must be kept in mind. First, "the race-privilege policy is deliberate bourgeois class policy." Second, "the race-privilege policy is, contrary to surface appearance, contrary to the interests, short range as well as long range interests of not only the Black workers but of the white workers as well." He repeatedly emphasized that "the day-to-day real interests" of the European-American worker "is not the white skin privileges, but in the development of an ever-expanding union of class conscious workers." He emphasized, "'Solidarity forever!' means 'Privileges never!'" He elsewhere pointed out, "The Wobblies [the Industrial Workers of the World] caught the essence of it in their slogan: 'An injury to one is an injury to all.'"

Throughout his work Allen stresses that "the initiator and the ultimate guarantor of the white skin privileges of the white worker is not the white worker, but the white worker's masters" and the masters do this because it is "an indispensable necessity for their continued class rule." He describes how "an all-pervasive system of racial privileges was conferred on laboring-class European-Americans, rural and urban, exploited and insecure though they themselves were" and how "its threads, woven into the fabric of every aspect of daily life, of family, church, and state, have constituted the main historical guarantee of the rule of the 'Titans,' damping down anti-capitalist pressures, by making 'race, and not class, the distinction in social life.'" That, "more than any other factor," he argues, "has shaped the contours of American history -- from the Constitutional Convention of 1787 to the Civil War, to the overthrow of Reconstruction, to the Populist Revolt of the 1890s, to the Great Depression, to the civil rights struggle and 'white backlash' of our own day."

Strategy

Allen also addressed the issue of strategy for social change. He emphasized, “The most vulnerable point at which a decisive blow can be struck against bourgeois rule in the United States is white supremacy.” He considered “white supremacy” to be “both the keystone and the Achilles heel of U.S. bourgeois democracy.”

Based on this analysis Allen maintained, “the first main strategic blow must be aimed at the most vulnerable point at which a decisive blow can be struck, namely, white supremacism.” This, he argued, was the conclusion to be drawn from a study of three great social crises in U.S. history – “the Civil War and Reconstruction, the Populist Revolt of the 1890s, and the Great Depression of the 1930s.” In each of these cases “the prospects for a stable broad front against capital has foundered on the shoals of white supremacism, most specifically on the corruption of the European-American workers by racial privilege.”

Groundbreaking Analysis Continues to Grow in Importance

Ted Allen died on January 19, 2005, and a memorial service was held for him at the Brooklyn Public Library where he had worked. Then on October 8, 2005, his ashes, as per his request, were spread in the York River (near West Point, Virginia) close to its convergence with the Pamunkey and Mattaponi Rivers – the location where the final armed holdouts, "Eighty Negroes and Twenty English," refused to surrender in the last stages of Bacon’s Rebellion.

Allen’s historical work has profound implications for American History, African-American History, Labor History, Left History, American Studies, and “Whiteness” Studies and it offers important insights in the areas of Caribbean History, Irish History, and African Diaspora Studies. With its meticulous primary research, equalitarian motif, emphasis on the class struggle dimension of history, and groundbreaking analysis his work continues to grow in influence and importance.

In his personal and political life Theodore W. Allen tried not to think or act “white.” He explained -- “the white race is now, and always has been nothing other than a bourgeois social control formation in this country.”

He considered it “the special obligation of the European-American worker” to act by “resigning from the white race, joining the human race as, if you will, a born-again proletarian free of the incubus of the ‘white’ identity.” He added that “resigning . . . Does not entail . . . entering some other ‘racial’ or nationality category; such a European-American remains a European-American.”
