    The Truth About World War II

    This is more than a story of the racist attacks¿court-martials, violent mobs, lynchings¿that were the real face of the U.S. ¿war for democracy.¿ It¿s a story of how Black workers fought back (including many GIs), based on news articles from the socialist newspaper, The Militant. Learn how the March on Washington Movement swelled in response to Roosevelt¿s efforts to maintain the racist course of U.S. imperialism. Glimpse the heroism of the participants in the protests and uprisings, which have been erased from the official history books. Their courage is part of the heritage of today¿s working class. But this book is the only place where you can find it truthfully presented.

    Capitalism, racism and living struggles for human rights

    This is a wonderful collection, an essential part of the history we need to know to understand American capitalism and racism, the fight for Black liberation and equal rights, and working class struggles as a whole. The protests and campaigns described here were an essential foundation for the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, and should inspire us to continue the fight today. Here are some 150 articles, pamphlets and political resolutions, a week-by-week account of political developments and struggles during tumultuous years of the 1940s. They come from the socialist newsweekly, the Militant, and are written by working class leaders seeking to build on the labor battles of the 1930s and to deepen the fight against racist oppression. The articles document instances of police brutality and killings, lynch-mob murders of Blacks, and the pervasive racist discrimination in employment, housing and the military. But above all, they record, analyze and promote the fight against these conditions. The success in uniting Black and white workers to smash Henry Fords anti-union stronghold and bring the UAW to Ford Motor Co., the mass protests of the 1942 March on Washington Movement-- and the bitter opposition of the Roosevelt administration to this anti-racist movement; the 1943 Harlem rebellion against killer cops-- ¿A protest against intolerable conditions;¿ its all here to learn from and be inspired by. An extensive chronology and glossary will help today¿s reader understand this history all the better.
