Boston Socialist School

Black Liberation and the US Left

This historical inquiry aims to illuminate prospects, problems, successes
and failures on the part of socialist and left movements in advancing Black
Liberation and advancing Black-white unity. Hopefully, the course will

parties and organizations in the battle for racial justice and liberation.
