"Our World Through Jenkins' Eyes" on Labor Beat

Cable-tv premiere of video commemorating the documentary footage of the late William Jenkins III.
"Our World Through Jenkins' Eyes"

When William Jenkins III died unexpectedly at the age of 44 last October, he was emerging as a nationally-, and even internationally-, recognized labor documentarist of great talent and relentless energy. In some 5 years he videotaped an amazing spectrum of actions in the labor and progressive community, from homelessness issues to the Teamsters election, from Native Americans to the Screen Actors Guild. (Jenkins was also an accomplshed editor, whose works are part of the general Labor Beat catalog.)

At the Jan. 6 Commemoration of his activist life at a packed U.E. Hall, a 17-minute video was shown bringing together highlights of his footage. That video, "Our World Through Jenkins' Eyes" , will be shown on the upcoming dates on Labor Beat.
