The American Nightmare: 20th Century U.S. History, Red Scares, & Fred Hampton

Deep Into History

I recently had the honor to collaborate with the incomparable Rev Left Radio:

Breht and I join forces to have a wide-ranging discussion on 20th century American history, with a focus on the underlying racial and class dynamics of early to mid-century America that led to the rise of the Civil Rights Movement and then the Black Panther Party – specifically their preemminent organizer and leading revolutionary from Chicago Illinois, Chairman Fred Hampton. The conversation naturally takes many interesting and worthwhile detours along the way!
