Black self-determination and the struggle for socialism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, there is a new conversation about self-determination. Driven by questions facing the movement today, activists look back to previous waves of struggle, especially during the 1960s, to see what history says about self-determination of Black people and oppressed nations. For socialists, the self-determination of oppressed peoples as part of the socialist project goes back even further than the 60s. This meeting explores the politics of self-determination in the 60s, and the approach that the Communist International took in the early 20th century to self-determination and the struggle for socialism.
