Ali Book Talk, April 9
MRC Book Talk featuring Dr. Omar Ali, Associate Professor, African American Studies Program, Department of History and International and Global Studies. Tuesday, April 9. 3 - 4 p.m. Elliott University Center, room 062 Multicultural Resource Center. Dr. Omar Ali will be discussing his book In the Lion'?s Mouth. In this book Ali discusses how "African Americans organized a movement - distinct from the white Populist movement--in the South and parts of the Midwest for economic and political reform: Black Populism. Between 1886 and 1898, tens of thousands of black farmers, sharecroppers, and agrarian workers created their own organizations and tactics primarily under black leadership. Growing out of the networks established by black churches and fraternal organizations, Black Populism found further expression in the Colored Agricultural Wheels, the southern branch of the Knights of Labor, the Cooperative Workers of America, the Farmers Union, and the Colored Farmers Alliance. By the turn of the century, Black Populism had been crushed by relentless attack, hostile propaganda, and targeted assassinations of leaders and foot soldiers of the movement. The movement's legacy remains, though, as the largest independent black political movement until the rise of the modern civil rights movement."
