Black Self-Determination and the Struggle for Socialism

Socialism 2015

July 02, 2015

With the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, there is a new conversation about self-determination. Driven by questions facing the movement today, activists look back to previous waves of struggle, especially during the 1960s, to see what history says about self-determination of Black people and oppressed nations. For socialists, the self-determination of oppressed peoples as part of the socialist project goes back even further than the 60s. This meeting explores the politics of self-determination in the 60s, and the approach that the Communist International took in the early 20th century to self-determination and the struggle for socialism.
