Join us virtually. This week we are reading Chapter 3 of Walter Rodney’s book “The Russian Revolution.” The title of the Chapter is Marx, Marxism and The Russian Left.
Here is the link to the reading.
During this current period of economic and public health crises along with the eruption of mass demonstrations, urban rebellions and sharpening debates around the objective nature of the state and the capitalist-imperialist system, the work of Dr. Rodney becomes even more relevant.
Before Walter Rodney was assassinated he was a renowned
Pan-African and socialist theorist on the Bolshevik Revolution and its relationship to Africa’s post-colonial legacy. Abayomi Azikiwe will lead the discussion. His scholarly approach will allow us to find insights and create a deeper understanding of this extraordinary work.
ABOUT WALTER RODNEY
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.
