Socialism and the American Negro

Socialism and the American Negro

"But especially American Negroes must know what is going on in the world today and learn for themselves what [Socialism] has to teach them in order that they may preserve their culture, get rid of their poverty, ignorance and disease and help America live up at least to a shadow of its vain boast as the land of the free and the home of the brave" (W. E. B. DuBois, 1960). An unapologetic advocate for socialism, DuBois criticizes capitalism with biting words as he delivers a speech to the Wisconsin Socialist Club at age ninety-two.
