The panel will discuss the contents of the book: “The Black Race by Ho Chi Minh and Selected Works on Systemic Racism,” compiled by Dai Trang Nguyen and edited by Luis Silva. The publication is a collection of 20 essays that were written in the 1920s and 1960s by the Vietnamese revolutionary leader that trace the roots of institutional racism within the United States to the European enslavement of Africans through colonial imperialism. His essays delved into such topics as lynching, the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow and racial injustice, and the panel will examine how his past work is still relevant today within the social context of the Black Lives Matter movement.
