The close friendship between C.L.R. James and Richard Wright forms an intriguing chapter in the life of each. Their meeting of the minds—across significant differences in cultural and political background—was a moment of extraordinary revolutionary creativity as they discovered a shared understanding of African-American liberation struggle and the classical Marxist tradition. Recovering their insights remains a crucial task for today's socialist movement.
