Present Is Past: Understanding America’s Race-Based Framework

Leid Stories revisits an interview with Dr. Jeffrey Perry, an independent, working-class scholar whose work focuses on the role of white supremacy as a retardant to progressive social change.

Perry preserved and inventoried The Theodore W. Allen Papers, edited and introduced Allen's Class Struggle and the Origin of Racial Slavery: The Invention of the White Race, and has written introductions and appendices for the new edition of Allen’s two-volume The Invention of the White Race.

He also preserved and inventoried The Hubert H. Harrison Papers, now at Columbia University, edited A Hubert Harrison Reader, and authored Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918.
