Release of reader (vol. 2) on Black Revolutionaries in the United States

Communist Research Cluster announces the release of the latest volume of our Communist Interventions reader series: Black Revolutionaries in the United States. Featuring a wide range of revolutionary thought and theoretical debates from the early 20th century to the late 1970s, Black Revolutionaries in the United States offers a foundation for thinking through capitalism and race today. 

A PDF (and other formats) of the full reader is available for download on the Readers page.

This document differs from previous ones we have released in that we plan to give this volume a major overhaul and regard this version as provisional.  We have versioned the release as 0.1 to indicate its interim status; a version 1.0 will follow at some point in the future.  Some more discussion of this plan and process can be found in the reader introduction.

Table of contents:

1. Slavery And Capitalism
2. Socialism, Communism and the Negro Question
3. The Black Belt
4. Domestic Work
5. Independent Struggles
6. Nationalism, Internal Colonialism and the Black Bourgeoisie
7. Automation and the Outsiders
8. Black Power
9. Frantz Fanon
10. Black Panther Party
11. White-Skin Privilege
12. The League of Revolutionary Black Workers
13. Black Feminism
14. Reinvention and Critique of the Black Nation Thesis
15. The Nation Thesis Spreads

Capitalism cannot reform itself; it is doomed to self-destruction. No universal selfishness can bring social good to all. Communism—the effort to give all men what they need and to ask of each the best they can contribute—this is the only way of human life… In the end communism will triumph. I want to help bring that day. 

– W.E.B. Du Bois
