Reading group / Racism and Class / 11th of July 2019

1*qMXt5lyu081j8PL2NiOf-A

At the next meeting of our class struggle reading group we want to get our heads around the current debate on racism and class.

Unsurprisingly the debate is the most advanced in the US – but despite differences in conditions over here we might still get a clearer view on things by engaging with what comrades in the US have to say.

There are many texts to read, we chose a few – if you manage to read the first two of the texts below you be fine. We will try to summarise the other texts at the meeting. If you want to help us with that, please drop us a line:

We meet:
Thursday, 11th of July 2019, 6:30pm
MDR, 88 Fleet Street, London EC4Y 1DH
