Join CPE to read W.E.B. DuBois’s groundbreaking work, Black Reconstruction in America 1860-1880 (yes, all of it).
March 9, March 23, April 5 (Wednesday), April 20, May 4, and May 18, 6:30-8:30pm.
We live in a period characterized by attacks waged by business and government against the social and economic institutions that working people have fought and died for. Overwhelmingly, these attacks are also virulently anti-Black. Black Reconstruction deepens our understandings of the freedom struggles fought by enslaved and newly-emancipated Black people. This study will help us discover useful insights about the transformation of social and economic relationships to labor, land, education, and political power so relevant in our own times.
Over the course of six sessions, we will reflect on DuBois’ book and its relevance for organizing today. This study group will include presentations from guest presenters who will help participants draw lessons from the book.
