A giant of both Afro-Caribbean and African-American history, we rejoin Jeffrey B. Perry in his second Legacy appearance covering Volume II of his autobiography and treatment of the one and only Hubert Harrison. Called “The Black Socrates” by Joel A. Rogers, Harrison practically mentored Marcus Garvey, rubbed shoulders with A. Phillip Randolph and Arturo Schomburg and wrote the book on “militant” Negro politics for generations to come.
Harrison is a name Every Black History program should cover and that every Black freethinker should become critically aware of. But whether you know these names or not, do stick around. We’re digging in for a rich history lesson on this auto-didactic, radical Black atheist and Pan-African, socialist thought leader.
