March 7: Class, Race, and Power

Read Chapter 7 (“Class, Race, and Power in America”) in Amos Wilson’s Blueprint for Black Power.

Presentation by Krystal, Cynthia, and Sharon

Questions to think about as you read:

  • How does race and social class connect, according to Wilson?
  • What is the role of class consciousness?
  • Pay close attention to the “Preparing for Power” subsection in chapter 7. What social institutions transmit power?
  • What 4 processes does the ruling class use to dominate government?

Details for the following event at the December 12th Movement website.
