A Black Marxist Scholar Wanted to Talk About Race. It Ignited a Fury.

Adolph Reed is a son of the segregated South, a native of New Orleans who organized poor Black people and anti-war soldiers in the late 1960s and became a leading socialist scholar at a trio of top universities.Along the way, he acquired the conviction, controversial today, that the left is too focused on race and not enough on class. Lasting victories were achieved, he believed, when working-class and poor people of all races fought shoulder to shoulder for their rights.In late May, Reed, now 73 and a professor emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania, was invited to speak to the Democratic Socialists of America's New York City chapter. The match seemed a natural. Possessed of a barbed...
