Jack Bloom’s seminal 1987 book Class, Race, and the Civil Rights Movement: The Changing Political Economy of Southern Racism provided a sociohistorical analysis of the civil rights movement and examined the interaction between the economy and political systems in the South that led to institutional racism.
Join us for a discussion with the author about civil rights history and the relevance it has to our struggles today.
Read a PDF of the introduction and final chapter of the book here. We will have copies for sale at the meeting.
Jack Bloom is the chair of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Indiana University Northwest. He is also the author of “Seeing through the Eyes of the Polish Revolution: Solidarity and the Struggle against Communism in Poland” (Historical Materialism 2014).
