This Video on The Invention of the White Race
by Theodore W. Allen
Just Passed the 45,000-Viewers Mark on YouTube.
Theodore W. Allen’s work provides an essential foundation for a radical critique of U.S. history.
Its focus on the centrality of the struggle against white supremacy in the context of class struggle points the way forward for struggle in the 21st century.
Those who teach classes are encouraged to read and to include Allen’s seminal work in their courses. They are also encouraged to utilize this video.
The slide presentation/talk opens with some insights from Hubert Harrison, “The Father of Harlem Radicalism.”
Hubert Harrison and Theodore W. Allen are two of the most important writers and thinkers on "race" and class in the twentieth century and people are strongly encouraged to view and share this video and to discuss their work with others.
