Join in reading and discussing the writings of Walter Rodney on the Russian Revolution. Renowned Pan-African and socialist theorist on the Bolshevik Revolution and its post-colonial legacy – In his short life, Guyanese intellectual Walter Rodney emerged as one of the foremost thinkers and activists of the anticolonial revolution, leading movements in North America, Africa, and the Caribbean. Wherever he was, Rodney was a lightning rod for working-class Black Power organizing. His deportation sparked Jamaica’s Rodney Riots in 1968, and his scholarship trained a generation how to approach politics on an international scale. In 1980, shortly after founding the Working People’s Alliance in Guyana, the thirty-eight-year-old Rodney was assassinated.
Hosted by the Communist Workers League – Detroit branch
