AFRI 116 AF - Marxism and the Black Radical Tradition
Marxism has had a long and vibrant relationship with Black liberation movements worldwide - from early twentieth-century Harlem to postwar anti-colonial struggles to the Black Panther Party. Such thinkers and activists have linked their efforts to Marx, Lenin, and other central figures, while simultaneously molding Marxism to address the circumstances of people of African descent and infusing the philosophy with approaches from the Black radical tradition. The course will examine classic Marxist texts alongside Black radical contributions and interventions to deepen our understanding of racial capitalism and to illuminate possibilities for liberation that come from a Marxist praxis deeply engaged with important approaches in Black thought.
