We created this podcast in recognition that there are a number of podcasts for the American “left,” but many of them focus heavily on the organizing of social democrats, progressives, and liberal democrats. Aside from that, on the left we are always fighting a war of ideas and if we do not continue to build platforms to share those ideas and the stories of their implementation from a leftist perspective, they will continue to be ignored, misrepresented, and dismissed by the capitalist media ...

The West End was once a vibrant community full of people, opportunities, and excitement. Unfortunately, the historic West End was largely razed in the 1950s as part of a series of urban renewal projects that decimated Black communities by placing highways and interstates through their neighborhoods (the West End is divided by I-75). This, combined with segregation, white flight, redlining, housing projects, and more, creates a complex history. Today, gentrification is forcing many longtime r ...

“Few books make history and fewer still become the foundational texts for the movements and struggles of an entire people....” One such great work was The Souls of Black Folk by William EB Du Bois. Published in 1903, it is a powerful and hard-hitting view of sociology, race and American history. It became the cornerstone of the civil rights movement and when Du Bois attended the first National Negro Conference in 1909, he was already well-known as a proponent of full and unconditional equali ...
