The Invention of the White Race

“The Origin of Racial Oppression in Anglo-America,” the second volume of “The Invention of the White Race” (Verso Books, 2012) by Theodore W. Allen will be discussed this Friday night, March 8, 2013 at 7:30 PM (and for the next four Fridays) by Jeffrey B. Perry at the Brecht Forum, 451 West St., NY in a program hosted by the Hubert Harrison and Theodore W. Allen Society. Allen’s work details the invention of the “white race” and the development of racial slavery, a particular form of racial oppression, in late 17th and early 18th-century Virginia.
