Selections from A Hubert Harrison Reader
Reading and discussion with the The Revolutions Study Group
Recognized by the contemporaries of his days as the leading orator, editor, thinker, organizer and writer in the Black Mecca of Harlem for over 10 years before his premature death at the age of 44, Harrison’s articles on socialism, Black self-determination, Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, US History, class first vs race first discussion, WWI, imperialism and internationalism were read around the world and are as relevant today as they were a century ago.
Jeffrey B Perry author of the 2 volume biography of Hubert Harrison (Columbia University Press) and editor of A Hubert Harrison Reader(Wesleyan University Press) describes Harrison “as the most class conscious of the race radicals and the most race conscious of the class radicals in those years” adding that he is “a key link in the two great trends of the Civil Rights/Black Liberation struggle—the labor and civil rights trend associated associated with A. Philip Randolph and Martin Luther King, Jr. and the race and nationalist trend associated with Marcus Garvey and Malcolm X.”
THE REVOLUTIONS STUDY GROUP (started at the Brecht Forum) has met since 2009.We also meet on Tuesday nights where we study Theodore Allen’s The Invention of the White Race.
There is a special offer to be part of this reading group and the Tuesday reading group for a combined price of $100.
