The Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association papers( Book )

8 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Africa for the Africans" was the name given in Africa to the extraordinary black social protest movement led by Jamaican Marcus Mosiah Garvey (1887-1940). Volumes I-VII of the Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers chronicled the Garvey movement that flourished in the United States during the 1920s. Now, the long-awaited African volumes of this edition (Volumes VIII and IX and a forthcoming Volume X) demonstrate clearly the central role Africans played in the development of the Garvey phenomenon. The African volumes provide the first authoritative account of how Africans transformed Garveyism from an external stimulus into an African social movement. They also represent the most extensive collection of documents ever gathered on the early African nationalism of the inter-war period. Here is a detailed chronicle of the spread of Garvey's call for African redemption throughout Africa and the repressive colonial responses it engendered. Volume VIII begins in 1917 with the little-known story of the Pan-African commercial schemes that preceded Garveyism and charts the early African reactions to the UNIA. Volume IX continues the story, documenting the establishment of UNIA chapters throughout Africa and presenting new evidence linking Garveyism and nascent Namibian nationalism

Black empire by George S Schuyler( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Samuel Schuyler, was a noted black satirist of the early 20th century. This book is an intricate tale of black nationalism, science fiction, and incredible feats of derring-do intended to bolster black pride and accomplishment in the uneasy years before World War II. The book originally ran as weekly serialized fiction in the Philadelphia Courier from 1936 to 1938. Principal character Dr. Henry Belsidus is obsessed with releasing blacks from the crushing tyranny of racism and poverty, and he plans to take over the world and enlists black intellectuals to help him. Underlying the story is an attempt to resolve the philosophical, economic, and cultural chasms between blacks and whites. The book reflects the hope and despair felt by blacks during this time--From Library Journal
The FBI's RACON : racial conditions in the United States during World War II by United States Bureau of Investigation( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During World War II, an unprecedented wave of militant black protest and activism swept through the United States, setting the stage for the civil rights movements of the 1950s and 1960s. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover perceived this racial turmoil as a threat not only to wartime mobilization efforts but also to the preservation of a stable, segregated society, and ordered an extensive, nationwide investigation and surveillance of African Americans "to determine why particular Negroes or groups of Negroes or Negro organizations have evidenced sentiments for other 'dark races' (mainly Japanese) or by what forces they were influenced to adopt in certain instances un-American ideologies." The unstated objective of the inquiry, known by the secret code name RACON, was to neutralize the black challenge to the institutional grip of Jim Crow. This landmark volume publishes for the first time the FBI's Survey of Racial Conditions in the United States, an exhaustive report that grew out of the larger internal security investigation. Compiled from reports submitted by fifty-six field units in all areas of the country, the document chronicles in rich detail the experience of African Americans during World War II. A comprehensive introduction by Robert A. Hill situates the FBI report within a political, cultural, and literary context to provide a fuller understanding of this sparsely documented period in African-American history and its relationship to civil rights movements in the postwar era. Hill also explores the ways in which the investigation and surveillance of blacks during World War II illuminate the FBI's wartime evolution from an investigative body to a political counterintelligence agency

You don't play with revolution : the Montreal lectures of C.L.R. James by C. L. R James( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You Don't Play With Revolution collects seven never-before-published lectures by Marxist cultural critic C.L.R. James, delivered during his stay in Montreal in 1967-1968. Ranging in topic from Marx and Lenin to Shakespeare and Rousseau to Caribbean history and the Haitian Revolution, these lectures demonstrate the staggering breadth and clarity of James' knowledge and interest. Little information exists in print on the critical period James spent working with West Indian intellectuals and students in Canada in the late 1960s; this collection highlights the themes we have come to associate with James' critical project and situates them in a new light. Readers just beginning to delve into James' work will find this collection accessible and engaging, an ideal introduction to a complex and multi-faceted body of scholarship. Editor David Austin has also included two seminal interviews produced with James during his stay in Canada, and a series of letters James exchanged with the West Indian university students who made these lectures possible. You Don't Play With Revolution also includes an introduction by Robert A. Hill, co-founder of the C.L.R. James Study Circle and historical advisor to the new James archive at Columbia University. C.L.R. James (1901-1989) was born in Trinidad and was a prominent anti-colonial scholar and cultural critic throughout his life. With Grace Lee and Raya Dunayevskaya, he helped define and popularize the autonomist Marxist tradition in the United States and Canada. David Austin is founder and trustee of the Alfie Roberts Institute, an independent research institute based in Montreal

How Europe underdeveloped Africa by Walter Rodney( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book derives from a concern with the contemporary African situation. It delves into the past only because otherwise it would be impossible to understand how the present came into being and what the trends are for the near future. In the search for an understanding of what is now called underdevelopment in Africa, the limits of enquiry have had to be fixed as far apart as the fifteenth century, on the one hand and the end of the colonial period, on the other hand."
