    proDA Book Club: Black Reconstruction in America - W.E.B. Du Bois

    Date:Monday, February 22, 2021
    Time: 12pm - 1:30pm ET (Washington DC time)
    Book: Black Reconstruction in America - W.E.B. Du Bois

    Book Discussion

    For February, the Pro DA Book Club will honor Black History month and replace the planned book The Force of NonViolence: An ethico-political bind, Judith Butler, 2020 with 3 chapters from W.E.B. Du Bois’s Black Reconstruction in America. (Chapter I: The Black Worker; Chapter XVI: Back Toward Slavery; Chapter XVII: The Propaganda of History).

    All are welcome to attend the February proDA Book Club meeting on February 22, 2021, 12-1:30pm Washington DC (ET) time.  Join us!  

    “This book is a history of the Reconstruction era first published in 1935. It marked a significant break with the standard academic view of Reconstruction at the time which contended that the period was a failure and downplayed the contributions of African Americans. Du Bois argued directly against these accounts, emphasizing the role and agency of blacks during the Civil War and Reconstruction and framing it as a period that held promise for a worker-ruled democracy to replace a slavery-based plantation economy.”

    Participants need to know that if there are access, affordability, etc. problems for a book/books, they should contact co-leaders, John Esteban Rodriguez and Betsy Ettorre (prodabookclub@democratsabroad.org) who will help them with the listed books.
