Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement: New Box: Part 1 (University of Illinois)

The theory and practice of capitalism are both very different things. In theory, capitalism distributes labor and wealth rationally. In practice, racism and capitalism intersect and produce unemployment and inequity. 20th century civil rights organizations fought against issues of racism, but did not address issues raised by capitalism. The issues of capitalism and imperialism were instead addressed by communist movements from all over the world. In this lecture, Abdul Alkalimat discusses the 20th century history of Communism and the origins of the new communist movement in the United States.
