On the Passing of Philip Levine, 1928-2015

On the Passing of Philip Levine, 1928-2015

So my intention going into February was to highlight the lives of black women in particular, to hold space for the parts of black history that so often get left unspoken, or that have washed away in the waves of historical amnesia so prevalent in this country. This week, I intended to write a post about the League of Revolutionary Black Workers, in part because it combines two of my most fervent historical interests: U.S. labor history and mid-20th century black revolutionary history. I thought too, that it might provide and interesting historical synthesis of my two previous interviews.
