Harlan County U.S.A. by Barbara Kopple( Visual )

11 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles the 1973 Harlan County, Kentucky coal miners' strike against the operators of the Brookside mine and the Duke Power Company, which resulted from the company's refusal to honor the national contract of the United Mine Workers of America when the miners joined the union. Barbara Kopple and her crew spent three years filming within the mining community and 180 families' bitter struggle to win a contract. Facing dangerous and violent anti-union gun thugs and the brutal murder of one of their own, the striking miners fearlessly face the picket line day in and day out in the hopes of securing a fare wage and a better way of life for their families. The film is a tribute to the working families of America, particularly the women of Harlan County who actively organized and spearheaded efforts to keep the struggle alive
