Fifty Years Since the Detroit Rebellion

By Barry Grey
 

Availability: In stock

$3.50

Quick Overview

Fifty years after the 1967 Detroit "riot," all the social contradictions that produced this rebellion by the most oppressed sections of the working class are still present.

The writings in this pamphlet are a serious contribution to an understanding of this process and deserve to be read and studied. They examine the historical background of the events of July 1967 and their outcome. Deindustrialization, the growth of poverty, ever deepening social inequality have matured and accelerated in the decades since the uprising. It focuses particular attention on the role of the Democratic Party, which abetted by a host of pseudo left groups, has cultivated a layer of more privileged African Americans that have been brought forward to administer Detroit.

Description Fifty years after the 1967 Detroit "riot," all the social contradictions that produced this rebellion by the most oppressed sections of the working class are still present. The writings in this pamphlet are a serious contribution to an understanding of this process and deserve to be read and studied. They examine the historical background of the events of July 1967 and their outcome. Deindustrialization, the growth of poverty, ever deepening social inequality have matured and accelerated in the decades since the uprising. It focuses particular attention on the role of the Democratic Party, which abetted by a host of pseudo left groups, has cultivated a layer of more privileged African Americans that have been brought forward to administer Detroit. The result has been that fifty years after the events of 1967 the conditions for the working class in Detroit, black and white, are far worse than at the time of the rebellion. These events continue to evoke discussion and controversy. Written from a Marxist perspective, the writings in this pamphlet provide unique insight into those tumultuous times.
