"Black Liberation and Palestine Solidarity" in Augusta

AUGUSTA, GA (CSRAPEACE) - The CSRA Peace Alliance invites you to a public conversation with activist-historians Lenni Brenner and Matthew Quest, authors of the new book,  Black Liberation and Palestine Solidarity. Wednesday, February 19, at 7 pm at The Headquarters Library, 823 Telfair Street, Augusta, GA 30901.
“An informative, incisive, and essential historical analysis of the African American freedom movement’s solidarity with Palestine.”
— Michael Letwin, co-founder of Labor for Palestine and Jews for Palestinian Right of Return.

Through nuanced discussions of racism, capitalism, imperialism, and state power, this public conversation with authors Brenner and Quest will seek to clarify one of the most controversial legacies of the Black Power movement.

Among other histories and controversies, Brenner and Quest will discuss Stokely Carmichael, James Forman, the Black Panther Party, Malcolm X, Harold Cruse, the Nation of Islam, Israel’s relationship to Apartheid South Africa, and the recent conflict between Alice Walker and the Anti-Defamation League.

This event will also coincide with the highly-anticipated re-release of Lenni Brenner's Zionism In The Age  Of The Dictators, the famous and controversial book that documents Zionist collusion with Fascism and Nazism in World War II-era Europe.

Both Black Liberation And Palestine Solidarity and Zionism In The Age Of The Dictators will be available for purchase at the event. A book signing will follow.

Lenni Brenner has been an anti-war and anti-racist activist since the 1950s. As a journalist and historian, he is the author of over one-hundred articles for many publications, including New York's Amsterdam News, the Anderson Valley Advertiser, The Atlanta Constitution, CounterPunch, The Jewish Guardian, The Nation, The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, Middle East Policy, Middle East International, The Journal of Palestine Studies, The New Statesman of London, Al-Fajr in Jerusalem, and Dublin's United Irishman. Brenner is also the author of several books, including Zionism in the Age of the Dictators, The Iron Wall: Zionist Revisionism from Jabotinsky to Shamir, and The Lesser Evil, a history of the Democratic Party. He is the editor of 51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis and co-author of Black Liberation and Palestine Solidarity.
