Black Country Miners: A Struggle for Justice 1850 – 1926

Historian and author, Keith Robinson has published a book about the struggles of the colliers across the area, in their fight for better conditions and wages during the Victorian age and the early 20th century. 

Keith’s book reveals the individual stories of hundreds of men from Bilston, Coseley, Darlaston, Kingswinford, and beyond. 

Packed with information on local pits, it lays bare the injustices of the time, and the lengths to which the miners’ leaders went in their efforts to change people’s lives for the better.

Mining was one of the Black Country’s primary industries, so why were its workers treated so unjustly?
