Ending the Business of Injustice: Anti-Sweatshop Activism at the University of Michigan, 1999-2007
Ending the Business of Injustice is a public history exhibit assembled through the work of students at the University of Michigan, in collaboration with History 497 and the Eisenberg Institute’s Michigan in the World program, on the history of anti-sweatshop activism at the university. This website combines oral interviews, news and academic journal articles, and never before seen documents from the office of the president of the university to construct a narrative on this critically important period in the university’s history. While we have focused our efforts on examining the movement as it developed in Ann Arbor, this project will also provide key insights into the nature and origins of anti-sweatshop activism across the country
