""New Negro Politics in the Jim Crow South" narrates the story of New Negro political culture from the perspective of the black South. It details how the development and maturation of New Negro politics and thought was shaped not only by New York-based intellectuals and revolutionary transformations in Europe, but also by people, ideas, and organizations rooted in the South. Harold's aim is not to devalue the importance of the North or Europe during this period of black political and cultural renaissance. Instead, her probe into some of the critical events and developments below the Mason-Dixon-Line sharpen our vision of how many black activists, along with particular segments of the white American Left, arrived at certain theoretical conclusions and political choices regarding the politics of race, challenges to capitalist political economy, and alternative visions of nation. The book considers southern black political movements during a period dominated by the study of the urban North (and specifically the Harlem Renaissance). Focusing on Garveyites, A. Philip Randolph's militant unionists, and black anti-imperialist protest groups, among others, Harold argues that the South was a largely overlooked "incubator of black protest activity" between World War I and the Great Depression."--Provided by publisher
