This chapter summarizes how responses to the mass displacement of agricultural workers in the 1960s rural South established precedents for the treatment of workers who lost their jobs to deindustrialization and globalization in later decades. It also highlights connections between the southern cooperative movement and later efforts to restore local food systems and support small family farms, suggesting that the activsts involved in that movement left lasting legacies that are worth remembering in the context of rapid technological change and unstable employment that characterizes many sectors of the economy in the twenty-first century.

Keywords:   Cooperative movement, Deindustrialization, Family farms, Globalization, Local food
