Race Rebels, Black Power, & Community Organizing (nonfiction)

History of the Left with a focus on interracial organizing, antiracist organizing with working-class whites, and Black Power and solidarity movements. Also writing on the rise of the New Right / conservative populist movements. All in all, useful work for folks interested in or organizing around racism and classism.

Recommendations gleaned from "Hillybilly Nationalists, Urban Race Rebels, & Black Power" by Amy Sonnie & James Tracy. Add freely.

"Based on an article from The Good Men Project called "Why I Don't Want to Talk About Race" by Steve Locke, this list is a way for white people to learn more about race, whiteness & oppression. It is focused on non-fiction & memoir and comes from an American viewpoint and progressive, anti-racist point of view."
