This year, for Black History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making Black history across the labor movement.

Today's profile is Shawnte Harris of the Laborers (LIUNA).
Shawnte Harris is a third-term apprentice for LIUNA Local 737. "I have been able to get a house, and my family is way better off. I like knowing that I am doing things the right way in life. I am a blue-collar American!"
