Events over the last few years have exposed the deeply embedded relationship between racism and capitalism, but they have also illuminated the ongoing persistence and relevance of black radicalism as a tradition of resistance to it. This workshop will explore these themes and politics through the famous work of Cedric J. Robinson’s Black Marxism: The Making of the Black Radical Tradition, in conjunction with the book's recent republishing this year with its Third Edition.
