This week we bring you a two part series on the American black radical tradition. Joined by educator and activist Kazembe Balagun we discuss some of the fundamental questions of black marxism and revolution leading to the current day. In this episode we talk about the Haitian revolution, Harriet Tubman, WEB Du Bois, Booker T. Washington, Harry Haywood, CLR James and the Johnson Forest Tendency, James and Grace Lee Boggs, DRUM, the League of Revolutionary Black Workers, and the Black Panther Party.

Many of the texts in question can be found in the Communist Research Cluster Black Radical Tradition reader: https://cominsitu.wordpress.com/2020/06/02/black-revolutionaries-in-the-united-states/
