50 years ago: The curious dilemma of the American Negro

by Albert Beale

The South African political exile Lewis Nkosi, writing in Peace News in the period before he became a well-known author, drew on his experience of the South African struggle to criticise the analysis of African-American writer Louis Lomax in the latter’s book The Negro Revolt. This was part of PN’s wide-ranging coverage – by those involved – of the Civil Rights movement in the US in the ’60s.
