African-American leftism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

African-American leftism refers to left-wing political currents that have developed among various African-American communities in the United States of America.[1] These currents are active around social issues, and often call for an African-American led movement that aims at bringing about some form of socialism between the African-American community and White community and other minority groups.[2]
