Abstract

Dayo F. Gore unearths and examines a dynamic, extended network of communist Afro-American women during the early Cold War era in the United States. These women were part of a black left that laid much of the groundwork for both the civil rights movement of the 1960s and later strains of black radicalism. Radicalism at the Crossroads offers a sustained and in-depth analysis of the political thought and activism these women and adds a new dimension to our understanding of the tumultuous time in United States history.
