No Fascist USA!
The John Brown Anti-Klan Committee and Lessons for Today’s Movements
Hilary Moore, James Tracy, Robin D.G. Kelley
- The racist violence on display in Charlottesville struck an alarming wake-up call about the rise of white supremacy, anti-Semitism, and pro-fascism have during the Trump presidency. As these flash points continue to occur and tip into the news cycle, Jamey Tracy and Hilary Moore will be able to address them from the standpoint of the history of radical groups’ efforts to confront similar outbreaks when white supremacists felt they had a friend in the White House.
- Will be of great interest to those who support the Black Lives Matter movement.
- No Fascist USA! will tap similar markets as those drawn to books like Tyranny in general, and Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook in particular.
- This book is written primarily for people whose awareness of anti-racism and anti-fascism began in response to the more recent rise of the alt-right, and is an opportunity to explore ideas, strategies, and politics of anti-fascism by rewinding the conversation to the Reagan Years--where the contemporary alt-right has its roots.
- The book's latter chapters focus on lessons for today's activists.
- This book shows how the debates around how to best confront the extreme right have deep roots in the last century. In a sense it is a prequel to the stories we listen to today about today’s organized racists and their opponents.
- Will include interviews with surviving members of the John Brown Anti-Klan Committee, a few former members wil endorse this book.
- Will include facsimiles and images of DIY-era posters and pamphlets used during the movement.
