TEN RESOURCES ON BLACK LIBERATION & ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY

Economic Democracy isn’t a new idea. And Black Liberation should not be on our minds only during black history month.

These are long-standing political movements and traditions that ground us. Our work and the work of our peers and partners around the US and across the Americas and the globe have long roots in generations and centuries of freedom and labor struggle. From reconstruction to the March for Jobs and Freedom a century later, we continue to live in the shadow of a system in which something of slavery remains, and something of freedom is yet to come”. In the words of Eduardo Galeano, “the system of power is not in the least eternal. We may be badly made, but we are not finished.
