Class Struggle and the Color Line
American Socialism and the Race Question, 1900-1930
A thoughtful collection of original documents highlighting the deep, early roots of Black radicalism in the US from 1900-1930.

As Black oppression moves again to the forefront of American public life, the history of radical approaches to combating racism has acquired renewed relevance.

Collecting, for the first time, source materials from a diverse array of writers and organizers, this reader provides a new perspective on the complex history of revolutionary debates about fighting anti-Black racism. Contextual material from the editor places each contribution in its historical and political setting, making this volume ideal for both scholars and activists.
