What African American history means for all of us

It is through the history of the struggle of Black Americans for equality that the real history of the U.S. is revealed. From the "three-fifths Compromise" of the 1787 Constitutional Convention to the present, American history, at its core, is the history of the unceasing efforts of the U.S. ruling class to keep the Black masses "in their place" in order to guarantee the domination of the U.S. working class as a whole.


Cover Story

The American people take a stand for peace

Now that a powerful, broadly based movement against the Iraq war is taking shape, it is time for revolutionaries to make some assessment of that movement and its goals. Otherwise the revolutionaries will be swept along by the growing strength of the spontaneous movement and will not be able to make an independent contribution as to the direction of the struggle for peace.

In order to understand peace, we must first understand war.
