Three Upcoming Talks On Theodore W. Allen's The Invention of the White Race
01 Oct 2013
Theodore W. Allen (1919-2005) was an anti-white-supremacist, working-class intellectual and activist whose work focuses on the centrality of struggle against white supremacy to efforts at progressive social change. He is best known for his pioneering writings beginning in 1965 on the concept of white skin privilege and for his seminal, two volume work The Invention of the White Race (1994 and 1997).
October 19, 2013 Saturday, 2 PM - 4:30 PM -- Theodore W. Allen's The Invention of the White Race (Verso Books) especially Volume 2 The Origin of Racial Oppression in Anglo-America will be discussed in a slide presentation/​talk by Jeffrey B. Perry at the Dudley Branch Library 65 Warren Street, Roxbury, MA. Event sponsored by South Asians for Global Justice. Contact persons Umang Kumar, Mirna Lascano and Charlie Welch; Branch Librarian Janet Buda; opening presenter Tony Van Der Meer.

October 20, 2013 Sunday, 11 AM Jeffrey B. Perry will discuss Theodore W. Allen's "The Invention of the White Race," at Community Church of Boston, 565 Boylston St., Boston, MA 02116. Contact persons Linda Jenkins and Mary Lynn Cramer.

October 20, 2013 Sunday, 5 PM Jeffrey B. Perry will discuss "Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism” and Theodore W. Allen's "The Invention of the White Race," at the Center for Marxist Education, 550 Massachusetts Ave (Central Square), Cambridge, MA 02116. Contact person Joe Ramsey.

Allen's work details how the “white race” was invented as a ruling-class social control formation and a system of racial oppression was imposed in response to labor solidarity in the wake of Bacon’s Rebellion (1676-77), how the “white race” was created and maintained through privileges conferred on laboring class European-Americans relative to African-Americans, how these privileges were ruinous to the interests of African-Americans and disastrous for laboring class European-Americans, and how the “white race” has been the principal historic guarantor of ruling-class domination in America.

Jeffrey B. Perry contributed new introductions, back matter, internal study guides, and expanded indexes to Verso Books’ new expanded edition of “The Invention of the White Race.”">More information on Dr. Perry, including his work on “Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918” and Theodore W. Allen (1919-2005).

Dr. Perry will offer a slide presentation/talk on Theodore W. Allen's two-volume classic, “The Invention of the White Race,” especially Volume 2 "The Origin of Racial Oppression" in Anglo-America.
