On The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund

On April 16, 2009, I will be speaking on Hubert Harrison at a fundraiser for the Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund at Columbia University (see the Talks tab for details).
The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund provides grants to students actively working for peace and justice. These need-based scholarships are awarded to those able to do academic work at the university level and who are part of the progressive movement on the campus and in the community. Early recipients worked for civil rights, against McCarthyism, and for peace in Vietnam. Recent grantees have been active in the struggle against racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression; building the movement for economic justice; and creating peace through international anti-imperialist solidarity.
A link to the Davis-Putter Scholarship can be found in the column to the left. Read More

Theodore W. Allen "Summary of the Argument of The Invention of the White Race" (In Two Parts)

Allen I usually begin by citing this work along with Theodore W. Allen, The Invention of the White Race 2 vols. (Verso: 1994 and 1997); Theodore W. Allen, "Class Struggle and the Origin of Racial Slavery: The Invention of the White Race," (1975), edited with an introduction by Jeffrey B. Perry (2006), which is available on the opening page of this website; and Jeffrey B. Perry, "Theodore W. Allen (1919-2005): In Memoriam" (2005), which appears below.
