The making of "colored-internationalism" in postwar Japan ; The presence of (black) liberation in occupied Okinawa -- Conclusion : we who become together.
Summary In this book, the author uncovers a hidden history of Afro-Asian radicalism and internationalism. The book presents arguments about the ways in which the affiliation of kindred spirits across the Pacific enabled anti-racist intellectuals and activists from Japan and the U.S. to forge a new philosophy of world history and formulate practical programs for liberation.
