About The Event
About Acknowledging Radical Histories:
In this collection of interviews spanning several years, Dr. Horne confronts the history of settler colonialism and the fight against fascism while providing dazzling insights on Jazz, Paul Robeson, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Shirley Graham Du Bois. Part history, part radical memoir, Acknowledging Radical Histories displays the power of conversation, solidarity, and coming together for a better future.
About Revolting Capital:
In this sweeping history of Washington, D.C., distinguished author Gerald Horne traces the pestilence that is racism—and radical resistance against it—over a century. This is a book that should be understood and studied by all anti-imperialist and progressive forces.
Gerald Horne is a prolific Marxist historian and author considered “one of the great historians of our time” (Cornel West). Raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Horne received his undergraduate education at Princeton, received his Ph.D. from Columbia University, and a J.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. He is currently the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston.
Dr. Horne has written nearly 40 books dealing with the confluence of African American History, Communist History, the struggle for liberation, internationalism, imperialism, colonialism, racism, white supremacy, and fascism. Biographies written by Horne include the lives of W.E.B. Du Bois, Benjamin Davis, Jr., William L. Patterson, John Howard Lawson, and Ferdinand Smith, among others. Horne has also produced a number of volumes that examine U.S. history through a lens of settler colonialism, racial capitalism, white supremacy, and imperialism, and their genocidal impacts on Africans and Indigenous Americans.
