Lynching: A Weapon of National Oppression (1932)

Lynch­ing: A Weapon of National Oppres­sion reminds us of an ear­lier gen­er­a­tion of rad­i­cals who disiden­ti­fied with lib­eral cap­i­tal­ist democ­racy and Amer­i­can excep­tion­al­ism to envi­sion an end to impe­rial dom­i­na­tion and eco­nomic exploita­tion. The pam­phlet and the multi-racial strug­gles against legal lynch­ing that inspired it are impor­tant tools as we heed renewed calls for black self-deter­mi­na­tion amidst a global reasser­tion of fas­cism and lynch law.
