THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 124: Why Don’t Black Politics Work for Black People w/ Adolph Reed, Jr.

April 14, 2021

Political Scientist Adolph Reed, Jr. has been writing about Black politics and Black political thought for over four decades. Having been an activist in the 60s as well as a long time labor organizer, his scholarship has persistently challenged orthodox thinking regarding Black political activity. Some of his classic works such as "Class Notes: Posing as Politics and Other Thoughts on the American Scene," and "Stirrings in the Jug: Black Politics in the Post Segregation Era," have set the standard for discussing the contemporary realities of Black political life.

Today we will inquire of Adolph Reed, Jr., "Does Black Politics Work for Black People, and if not why?"
