Working Class History is a web-based social media project made to popularise our collective history of struggle. In collaboration with the libcom.org online archive and a team of international voluntary researchers, WCH posts On This Day in History content every day about struggles of workers, women, LGBTQ+ people to people of colour to various social media platforms with over 150,000 followers. Plans for 2018 include podcasts, maps and more new media projects.
“Kudos to Working Class History for keeping us informed and keeping alive the memory of great people.”
– Linda Towlson
