Saturday Free School for Philosophy and Black Liberation
By Saturday Free School
Our weekly analysis of philosophy, history and current events through the life and works of W.E.B. Du Bois, James Baldwin, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Saturday Free School is committed to the political and ideological education of the people. In this regard we are more than a school, we are an instrument of the people. We seek ideological clarity, theoretical sophistication and a practice of principled unity. We investigate the logics of social movements, and methods of radical and revolutionary organizing.
We analyze the crisis facing the ruling elite in the aftermath of the protests against the January 6th congressional vote on certification of the electoral college. We discuss the struggle for unity among the poor and the possibilities ahead.
This week we will continue our discussion of W.E.B. Du Bois's unpublished work Russia and America. We will be reading Chapter 3, Blind Staggers: 1917 - 1936. The PDF of this book can be downloaded here: https://credo.library.umass.edu/view/full/mums312-b221-i082
