Celebrating the third volume of
CRITICAL BLACK STUDIES
Series Editor: Manning Marable
For many decades, black intellectuals in the United States have thought of racism as a global phenomenon. Transnational Blackness presents, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of the history, critical analysis, and theoretical perspectives of key black scholars and activists on the transnational dynamics of modern race and racism throughout the Americas, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and Europe. The book examines the social thought of, among others: W.E.B. DuBois, Eslanda Goode Robeson, Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton, and Michael Manley.
