A STRIKE AND AN UPRISING (in Texas) is an experimental documentary based in the telling of two events: the San Antonio pecan shellers’ strike of 1938 and the Jobs with Justice march led by Nacogdoches cafeteria workers, groundskeepers, and housekeepers in 1987. Filmmaker Anne Lewis explores both events using the methods of oral history and relating these stories strongly to contemporary ideas, events, and the continuing struggle against Confederate rule in Texas.
