Black Liberation and Socialism

by Ahmed Shawki
£10.99   paperback  Haymarket Books (2007)

Black Liberation and Socialism by Ahmed Shawki A sharp and insightful analysis of historic movements against racism in the United States�from the separatism of Marcus Garvey, to the militancy of Malcolm X and the Black Panther Party, to the eloquence of Martin Luther King Jr., and much more�with essential lessons for today�s struggles.
In the forty years since the civil rights movement, many gains have been made�but there is still far to go to win genuine change. Here is a badly needed primer on the history and future of the struggle against racism.

"Black Liberation and Socialism is a brilliant examination of the intersection of race and class in the United States. Shawki's rich historical analyses come with powerful theoretical insights into the relationship between anti-racist struggles and the fight for a liberated future for all. This book is essential reading for students of African-American history and for activists involved in the struggle against racism today"
(Nagesh Rao, Assistant Professor of Postcolonial Studies, The College of New Jersey )
"One of the most compelling books on radical black history and black liberation�essential reading for anyone interested in the ongoing struggle against racism"
