jeffrey_perry.JPGConsidered more race conscious than A. Philip Randolph and Chandler Owen and more class conscious than Marcus Garvey, Hubert Harrison is the key link in the ideological unity of the two great trends of the Black Liberation Movement—the labor and civil rights trend associated with Martin Luther King Jr., and the race and nationalist trend associated with Malcolm X. Jeffrey B. Perry, author of the recently published Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918, talks with host Eric Mann about Hubert Harrison’s life, work, and place within the rich tradition of 20th century Black radicalism in the US.
