The Black Lives Matter movement has shown that people in this country will fight fearlessly against racial injustice. The question remains: What will it take to end racism as we know it? & What should we replace this racist system with? Join the NYU socialists in a discussion on how these questions have been answered by generations of Marxists and socialists–from Lenin to the League of Revolutionary Black Workers. Their answers can serve as tools to furthering the movement today.
