In 1968, as protests shook France and war raged in Vietnam, the giants of Black radical politics descended on Montreal to discuss the unique challenges and struggles facing their brothers and sisters. For the first time since 1968, David Austin brings alive the speeches and debates of the most important international gathering of Black radicals of the era. Includes never-before-seen texts from Stokely Carmichael, Walter Rodney, and C. L.R. James. To learn more about this publisher, click here: http://bit. ly/2KzjCv6
