Professor Gerald Horne, professor of History and African American Studies at Houston University, discusses his new book Negro Comrades of the Crown: African-Americans and the British Empire Fight the U.S. Before Emancipation. Gerald has written over 30 books, with a focus on the centuries of building movements to fight U.S. imperialism, especially movement building and struggle organized and led by black folks in the U.S. Currently he is working on books that will revise the traditional understanding of 1776 and argue that the arrival of the Cuban Revolution in 1959 was as a response to Jim Crow imposed with the arrival of the U. S. as the dominant force on the island in 1898.
