Reviews

"Cedric Robinson was a towering intellectual and courageous activist in the grand tradition of W.E.B Du Bois. In these bleak times, it is imperative to keep his legacy alive and build on his work and witness. This book meets this imperative in a powerful way!"
--Cornel West, author of The Radical King

"In America, issues of race, poverty, and injustice haunt our nation. Futures of Black Radicalism examines causes and resolutions of these troubling challenges. The need for radical thinking has never been more evident. To this end, this book is not just a gift; it is a necessity."
--Harry Belafonte

"An astonishing gathering of essays and interviews featuring leading and emerging radical intellectuals."
--David Roediger, author of Class, Race, and Marxism

"What stands out about this book is the richness of intellectual discourse within its pages. A variety of historians, sociologists, and other scholars all tackle a central question: what, precisely, does the Black Radical Tradition say about life in the twenty-first century?"
--Robert Greene III, Society for US Intellectual History Blog
