Malcolm X, Black Liberation, and the Road to Workers Power

By Jack Barnes,

The foundations for the explosive rise of the Black liberation struggle in the US beginning in the mid-1950s were laid by the massive migration of Blacks from the rural South to cities and factories across the continent, drawn by capital's insatiable need for labor power—and cannon fodder for its wars....

“Especially illuminating are the photographs within the book, which document the workers' movement world-wide. The photographs are accompanied by Barnes's captions, which serve to further emphasize the major themes of the book—that of the history of the global struggle of the proletariat for equality and dignity, and that of the political importance and evolution of Malcolm X.” Afro-Hispanic Review
