West Indian revolutionaries and the rise of American Communism

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

The 1920s marked the formative years of a “Black- Red relationship.” West Indian Immigrants, radicalized by the racist oppression of colonialism in their home countries, raised the consciousness of American Black communities. From Hubert Harrison, whom Aesop Phillip Randolph called “The Father of Harlem Radicalism” to Claudia Jones and her analysis of the triple oppression on the Black working class Woman, West Indian revolutionaries contributed much to debates on important questions like nationalism, self determination, and anti-imperialism.
