y la Batalla de Birmingham hasta las ideas de Malcolm X


The
civil rights movement in the US was a mass proletarian movement for Black
rights that smashed Jim Crow and permanently strengthened the fighting capacity
of the working class by raising self-confidence among African-Americans and
laying the basis for greater unity in struggle between workers of all races and
nationalities.
 
   Come to a discussion of that struggle and
its relevance today  -- from the fight
against “Three Strikes” legislation in Massachusetts, to defending immigrant
rights, and why workers who are Black will be a large part of the ranks and
leadership of the struggle for workers power.
