Black Liberation And The American Dream: The Struggle for Racial and Economic Justice

by Paul Le Blanc (Editor) - £16.99  Haymarket Books (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781608467853 | ISBN 10: 1608467856

Analysing intersections of race, class, and gender alongside primary texts, this unique volume explores racism and antiracism in the US.
 
Considering the connections between class and racial oppression, and the often marginalized role of the Left in antiracist struggles, Le Blanc skillfully introduces key texts from crucial figures in African American radicalism: Frederick Douglass, Martin Delany, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, Booker T. Washington, Marcus Garvey, W. E. B. Du Bois, Paul Robeson, C. L. R. James, A. Philip Randolph, Martin Luther King Jr., Bayard Rustin, Malcolm X, Ella Baker, and others.
 
This combination of a rich analytical understanding with key primary texts makes Black Liberation and the American Dream a unique and invaluable resource for those engaged in contemporary struggles. It is a crucial text for activists and scholars alike.
