Nelson Peery discusses Black Radical: The Education of An American Revolutionary."Why am I who never harmed anyone, mistreated, segregated, assigned an unequal place in a country that promises equality?" Nelson Peery asks this question upon returning home to Minneapolis from fighting in the all-black 93rd Infantry Division in World War II in BLACK RADICAL, the sequel to his acclaimed autobiography Black Fire."As I learned the truth," Peery realizes in the face of rising tides of racist violence, "I became a communist, for I could do nothing else." Newly politicized Peery's journey leads him from the works of W.E.B. DuBois and Marx to the streets of Detroit, Cleveland, Harlem and Los Angeles, where he encounters some of the most luminous figures of 20th century cultural history: Paul Robeson, Alexander Trachtenberg, Leadbelly, Malcolm X.More than a chronicle of personal events, BLACK RADICAL is a rich capsule of turbulent moments in postwar America, and an urgent reminder of all that informs the struggles of today, and an inspiration to younger generations of activists and radicals - Cody's Booksmoreless
