Thursday February 27 @ 7:30PM at the Brecht Forum: Black Workers Take the Lead w/Komozi Woodard, Cleo Silvers, Sam Anderson & Joan Gibbs. Moderated by Yusuf Nuruddin.
Launching the Brecht Forum’s year-long program “1974 Revisited” and closing the Brecht Forum’s Black History Month programming, this forum will explore the embrace of Marxism by large sections of the Black Movement in the United States during the early 1970s. As a period of rapid social change in which the benefits gained during the Civil Rights Movement were beginning to be felt and black mayors were being elected all over the country, black workers also began to take increasingly militant action at the point of production in a variety of industries.
