Book launch for Truth and Revolution: Sojourner Truth Organization by Michael Staudenmaier.
Founded in Chicago in 1969 from the rubble of the recently crumbled SDS, the Sojourner Truth Organization (STO) brought working-class consciousness to the forefront of New Left discourse, sending radicals back into the factories and thinking through the integration of radical politics into everyday realities. Through the influence of founding members like Noel Ignatiev and Don Hamerquist, STO took a Marxist approach to the question of race and revolution, exploring the notion of "white skin privilege," and helping to lay the groundwork for the discipline of critical race studies.
Michael Staudenmaier is a twenty year veteran anarchist and student of revolutionary movements and a doctoral candidate in history at the University of Illinois.
