Claudia Jones: Left of Karl Marx with Dr. Carole Boyce Davies

Dr. Carole Boyce Davies joined us this morning for a discussion of the life, work and continuing relevance of Claudia Jones.  Boyce-Davies’ book, Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones, provided us a nice basis from which to discuss primarily, as she writes, “Recovering the Radical Black Female Subject,” along with other topics such as internal colonialism, communism and radical pan-Africanism.  We also talked briefly about the current state Black/Africana Studies as we also looked to pay tribute to the real politics of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
