Class Struggle and the Color Line
February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Haymarket Books and the International Socialist Organization for a discussion of the new book CLASS STRUGGLE AND THE COLOR LINE: American Socialism and the Race Question, 1900-1930 with editor Paul M. Heideman in conversation with Brian Jones.
“Paul Heideman’s book reconstructs for us the long flowering of anti-racist thought and organizing on the American Left and the central role played by Black Socialists in advancing a theory and practice of human liberation. Class struggle and anti-racism are two sides of the same coin in this powerful collection. At a time when the emancipation of oppressed and working-class people remain goals of progressives everywhere, Heideman’s book provides us a map to a past that can help us get free.”
—Bill V. Mullen, Professor of American Studies, Purdue University
