Journalism & Mass Communication Anti-Racism Resources : Revolutionary People & Texts

Influential Black Leaders & Groups

This is an edited version of the authors from the Black Revolutionary Texts Google Drive that was curated by Alijah Webb, a New York University student. Unfortunately, the Google Drive is no longer active, but to find texts by these people you can still utilize the University Libraries catalog or Google Books in cases where copyright has expired. For more help or information please feel free to contact the JRR at jrrlib@library.wisc.edu.

*the list has been edited for clarity since we are no longer able to access the original G-Drive.
