With racial justice struggles on the rise, a probing collection considers the past and future of Black radicalism
Black rebellion has returned. Dramatic protests have risen up in scores of cities and campuses; there is renewed engagement with the history of Black radical movements and thought. Here, key intellectuals--inspired by the new movements and by the seminal work of the scholar Cedric J. Robinson--recall the powerful tradition of Black radicalism while defining new directions for the activists and thinkers it inspires.
