Episode 49: Hammer & Hoe
with Bettina Johnson
There’s importance in collaboration and experimentation when it comes to organizing. But what does organizing around super radical ideas in very practical and grounded ways in a community you’re not from look like? We chat with Bettina Johnson, co-founder of Liberation Library and member of Chicago Afrosocialists & Socialists of Color of the DSA, about the book Hammer & Hoe: Alabama Communists During the Great Depression by Robin D.G. Kelly.
Tune in to our first episode of the season to hear what the Alabama Communist Party can teach us about our social movements today.
