Highly acclaimed dissection of the new racism, from one of the greatest radical black intellectuals of our time
Many in the United States, including Barack Obama, have called for a post-racial politics; yet race still divides the country politically, economically, and socially. In this highly acclaimed work, Manning Marable rejects both liberal inclusionist strategies and the separatist politics of the likes of Louis Farrakhan. Looking back at African-American politics and the fight against racism of the recent past, he argues powerfully for a transformationist strategy that retains a distinctive black cultural identity but draws together all the poor and exploited in a united struggle against oppression."
