SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A San Francisco native, Danny Glover is an actor and a film director, as well as a political activist. On Monday, ILWU Local 10 honored Glover. Union leaders say Glover is a humanitarian and has been a part of a lot of social justice actions.
Glover has been active since 1968 when he was a student at San Francisco State University, and also worked as a casual on the waterfront during the strike. Former ILWU Local 10 Board member and retired longshoreman, Clarence Thomas said Glover has been a part of many rank and file struggles.
In the past, ILWU Local 10 has also named Angela Davis and Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. as honorary members.
