Los Angeles: The Black Radical History Series


This Black History Month, join the ANSWER Coalition and allied organizations for a four-part series of teach-ins and workshops highlighting revolutionary elements of Black history. While there has been much progress made in the fight against racism in the United States, there is still much ground to be covered before the total liberation of Black people is achieved. The length of the road ahead has been underscored by the Trump administration and the white supremacist sectors of society that it has emboldened. When the movement slows in pace, the role of progressives and revolutionaries is to study the concrete lessons from the struggles of the past and build on them for the sake of tomorrow. Many of the lessons from our radical predecessors uncover a path to a new and sustainable people’s system free of racism, bigotry, exploitation, imperialism and environmental plunder.
