Race Capitalism Justice
Winter 2017
Digital: 12.99

144 pages

Walter Johnson, Harvard historian and author of the acclaimed River of Dark Dreams, urges us to embrace a vision of justice attentive to the history of slavery—not through the lens of human rights, but instead through an honest accounting of how slavery was the foundation of capitalism, a legacy that continues to afflict people of color and the poor. Inspired by Cedric J. Robinson’s work on racial capitalism, as well as Black Lives Matter and its forebears—including the black radical tradition, the Black Panthers, South African anti-apartheid struggles, and organized labor—contributors to this volume offer a critical handbook to racial justice in the age of Trump.

Featuring Walter Johnson, Robin D. G. Kelley, Manisha Sinha, Donna Murch, Peniel Joseph, Daniel Borzutzky, Peter Linebaugh, Samuel Moyn, and more.

Full list of contributors: Walter Johnson leads a forum with Donna Murch, Caitlin Rosenthal, Peter Linebaugh, Roberto Gargarella, Peter James Hudson, Manisha Sinha, Samuel Moyn, Stephanie Smallwood, Andrew Zimmerman, Peniel Joseph, and N. D. B. Connolly. Plus, Robin D. G. Kelley, Dwayne Betts, Daniel Borzutzky, and Dawn Lundy Martin.
