“Living Archives” as ground for today’s battles in thought and activity on the Centenary of Raya Dunayevaya’s birth
Speaker: Olga Domanski, National Co-Organizer of News and Letters Committees, secretary to Raya Dunayevskaya from 1949, when they were both in the Johnson-Forest Tendency, until Dunayevskaya’s death in 1987.
“When you see how historically important was—and is—Dunayevskaya’s analysis in the 1940s of state-capitalism as a world stage; when you see the importance of the analysis out of which Marxist-Humanism developed the category of Black Masses as Vanguard; when you know the significance to the history of world thought that a small handful of Marxists had gone back, in the midst of World War II, to study Lenin as philosopher and try to read Hegel as Marx had done—you want the world to know that this is the legacy of the Johnson-Forest Tendency that was ‘preserved’ only when it was transcended by Raya Dunayevskaya’s full development of Marxist-Humanism.”
• Hear about the history of the movement from one who lived it and who “joined the radical movement in the mid-1940s to help make a revolution to rid the world of war and fascism.”
• Learn about the “living archives” of Raya Dunayevskaya as not something to contemplate, but to do.
