racial capitalism, year 2018

In an era of racist violence and economic refeudalization and their entwinement, what lessons can be drawn anew from  reconstruction, the black radical tradition, and the early twentieth-century political novel?

Join InterCcECT for a reading group on Cedric Robinson’s Black Marxism, Monday 15 January, 2018, 4pm-6pm at O’Shaughnessy’s Public House (Brown Line: Montrose).   We’ll focus on Part 3: “Black Radicalism and Marxist Theory.” Contact us for PDFs.  Special guest Andrew Leong will facilitate discussion.


Please note:  online conversations about Parts 1 and 2 of Black Marxism will be held on Wednesday, January 10, 5-7pm (CT), and Friday, January 12, 5-7pm (CT). For participants outside the Chicago area, an online conversation on Part 3 will be held on Monday, January 15, 5-7pm (CT). Please contact Andrew Leong at andrew.leong@northwestern.edu by January 8 if you would like to participate in any of these conversations, or require PDFs of the reading. Participants may also find it fruitful to read the online articles in the African American Intellectual History Society’s roundtable on Black Marxism (http://www.aaihs.org/announcement-aaihs-online-roundtable-on-cedric-robinsons-black-marxism/).

The January 12 and 15 online conversations will be facilitated by Lisa Hofmann-Kuroda (http://ealc.berkeley.edu/people/hofmann-kuroda-lisa)

The January 10 conversation will be facilitated by Andrew Leong.
