Excellent Read on Race and Ideology


HAMMER AND HOE: ALABAMA COMMUNISTS DURING THE GREAT DEPRESSION by Robin Kelly is a fantastic read. The KKK and those who supported white supremacy in the South and Southwest feared the rise of black communist, who organized with whites to eradicate oppression and hierarchy. This gathering was most noted in states like Texas and Alabama. Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison wrote about this narrative in their books.
