October 17, 2014 - Seminar with Carol Anderson, Ph.D.

Carol Anderson, Ph.D., Associate Professor of African American Studies and History, Emory University

"Bourgeois Radicals: The NAACP and the Struggle for Colonial Liberation, 1941-1960"


We know the story.  Historians have told it for more than forty years.  After the onset of the Cold War, fierce anticolonialism emanated solely out of the black left, which paid dearly for opposing U.S. imperial policy.  Paul and Eslanda Robeson, W.E.B. Du Bois, W. Alphaeus Hunton, and even, in his own twisted way, Max Yergan came up against the Leviathan of the Red Scare and lost. Meanwhile African American liberals, such as the NAACP, turned their backs on Asians and Africans determined to be free, colluded with the Truman administration’s support of European empires, and received, in return a few pieces of civil rights tokens.  We know the story.  It’s just not true.
