Veteran activist and writer Dan Georgakas contributes to this section with a text on “Black Jacobins in Detroit: 1963.” He describes the impact made by the revised edition of James’s work on a new generation of black radicals in the 1960s. For Georgakas, the book served as a timely catalyst to the emerging radical movement in Detroit. He describes how the book was read and admired by most of the individuals who were active in Detroit radical politics, including many who would be in the leadership of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers. Georgakas concludes that The Black Jacobins serves as a key stimulus to the political and cultural processes already in motion.
