Radical Motown, Radical Heritage: The League of Revolutionary Black Workers
Keywords:African American History, Black Power, Black Working Class, New Left, Detroit
The essay proposes a short history of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers, a radical left-wing organization founded in Detroit in 1969. Even though the League disappeared in 1971, its role was significant, and it allows us to write a more complex history of the Black Power Movement by linking the Old Left with the New Left. Its internal quarrels were not only due to clashes of ego but, instead, reflected actual political differences.
