Jessica Salfia and Emily Hilliard present 55 Strong: Inside the West Virginia Teachers' Strike

What compelled West Virginia's teachers to strike? How did they organize? What were teachers and allies doing during the strike? And how is the West Virginia labor movement celebrating its victory? 55 Strong: Inside the West Virginia Teachers' Strike answers these questions and offers unique, on-the-ground insight into this historic strike. The book includes essays by teachers from around the state, organizing documents, images from the picket lines, and material on the history of the labor movement in West Virginia.

Jessica Salfia is an activist, writer, and teacher in the West Virginia public school system. 

Emily Hilliard is a West-Virginia based folklorist and writer.
