History of the Civil Rights Movement and Black Liberation. One of hopefully a series of historical and education videos/streams. This covers brief histories of the disagreements between Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey and Du Bois and Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as their associated groups and followers.
The historical context often gets framed around issues of those who were more for separatist paths vs. integrationist paths. I’m going to show how this, although not completely lacking any relevance, is a misdirection away from what the true contention was historically, especially with regard to the interests of power structures.
The real target, the real threat to power, and the proper way to root any struggle for Black Liberation, is always going to be, as it always was historically, movements and ideas rooted in organizing and educating around the issues of anti-capitalism, anti-imperialism and anti-colonialism, as well as their connections to white supremacists ideological and institutional structures in society.
