<i>Abstract: </i>Abdul Alkalimat explores how urban revolutionaries inspired by Communism shaped American society. <br/><br/> <i>Title: </i><b>New Box, Part 2</b><br/> <i>Speaker: </i><b>Abdul Alkalimat</b><br/> <i>Professor of African American Studies, University of Illinois</i><br/> <br/> <i>Description: </i>In the 1960s, outright insurrection in urban areas changed the political landscape of the US. Non-violence gave way to a more militant approach inspired by third world Communist movements. Instead of a black community located in the black belt south, cities became the new focal points for the black community. The "Street Force" consisted of revolutionary movements that were resolutely committed to black liberation. Continuing his lecture "New Box", Abdul Alkalimat explores how urban revolutionaries inspired by Communism formed movements that shaped American society. <br/> <i>Sponsor: </i>Department of African American Studies <br/> <i>Lecture Series: </i>Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement
