w/ Prof. Peter Linebaugh & Dr. Jahi Issa

On tonight’s episode of New Abolitionists Radio we welcome Prof. Peter Linebaugh who is an American Marxist historian who specializes in British history, Irish history, labor history, and the history of the colonial Atlantic. He is a member of the Midnight Notes Collective. We will also ask him about the 13th Amendment of the US Constitution which he says did not abolish slavery as taught.

Then we will be joined by Dr. Jahi Issa, formerly an Assistant Professor of History and Africana Studies at Delaware State University (a Historically Black College – HBCU) published an accurate and thought provoking article entitled, “The Ethnic Cleansing of Historically Black Colleges & Universities in the Age of Obama.” He is a victim of 21st Century Slavery and Human Trafficking and will tell us all about it.

As we do every week we will discuss a few news stories making headlines and profile a state constitution (Mississippi) and an abolitionists (Titus Cornelius (c. 1753-1780).
