The spark that led to the unionization of the giant General Motors Corporation, and eventually the entire auto industry, was ignited on December 30, 1936, when auto workers in Flint Michigan sat down and occupied their plants.
Genora (Johnson) Dollinger’s role during the strike has been portrayed in two film documentaries: The Great Sit-Down Strike, by the British Broadcasting Corporation, and the Academy Award-nominated documentary, With Babies and Banners: The Story of the Women’s Emergency Brigade.
Striking Flint is the only written account of her story, told in her own words.
