Historian Keisha N. Blain examines the work of women in the Black nationalist movement of the early 20th century - as architects of a global, diasporic vision of Black identity, and organizers of a complex, sometimes contradictory, mass movement that shaped the course of modern Black liberation and feminist politics today.
Keisha is author of Set the World on Fire: Black Nationalist Women and the Global Struggle for Freedom from University of Pennsylvania Press.
Ecologist Andreas Malm explains how a disconnection from time and nature blinds the Global North to the immediate realities of climate change - as two centuries of carbon returns to threaten a present society frozen by the ideological constraints of capitalism, only a radical transformation of our politics and economy will keep us afloat as the storm rolls in.
Andreas is author of The Progress of This Storm: Nature and Society in a Warming World from Verso.
Journalist Vegas Tenold follows the rebirth of White nationalism in 21st century America - as a subset of reactionary affinities diagnosing class problems with incoherent racist theories, and an at-times useful tool for a political class that has been ruling the nation through the policies of White supremacy just fine on its own.
Vegas is author of Everything You Love Will Burn: Inside the Rebirth of White Nationalism in America from Nation Books.
Writer Shaun Scott traces a history of Millennials and the world they've inherited - as a generation coming of age in the gap between American ideology and the harsh economic and cultural realities of neoliberalism, and as a cohort awakened to the values of cooperation, as a means of survival in this world, and the basis of a better world to win.
Shaun is author of Millennials and the Moments That Made Us: A Cultural History of the U.S. from 1982-Present from Zero Books.
In a Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen unloads on the NRA's death cult / pyramid scheme, and Wayne LaPierre's wondrous fantasy of a world without communist liberal children in the way of the pipeline funneling money and blood over graveyards and hospitals, straight into his already dead, paranoid corpse.
