Conversation with Jerome Scott, former member League of Revolutionary Black Workers

This forum lifts up lessons learned for today’s generation of scholar activists, movement actors, and revolutionaries rooted in the experiences of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers (LRBW), the organization of industrial workers and their communities in Detroit, MI, 1968 to 1970, based in the RUMs (Revolutionary Union Movement organizations) in the auto plants, many of whom who are engaged in revolutionary struggle today. Through short videos and intergenerational conversation we will share lessons from the League of Revolutionary Black Workers for the current political moment and today’s struggle.
