Socialism 2015

July 02, 2015

W.E.B. Du Bois joined the Communist Party of the United States in 1961 at the age of 93. This talk will examine the long path Du Bois took towards becoming a Socialist. Du Bois embraced Marxist ideas in order to fight racism, imperialism and especially American capitalism. He also supported Stalin's Soviet Union. The talk will consider how Du Bois's legacy as a fighter for the emancipation of the working-class is important to struggles in our time against police violence, neoliberalism and U.S. imperialism.
