In honor of Black History Month, hear from four members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) as they reflect on the struggles and successes within the union to build a more inclusive culture on the working waterfront. The careers of Rodney Rhymes, Mike Chambers, Wilt Watkins and Zeek Green span several decades at the Port of Tacoma, from the 1980s to the present.

ILWU members move marine cargo at facilities managed by The Northwest Seaport Alliance, the operating partnership between the Port of Tacoma and the Port of Seattle.
