This essay authored by Komozi Woodard, titled “Citizen Malcolm X Blueprint for Black Liberation: Coming of Age with Rod Bush on Race, Class and Citizenship in the Bandung Era,” is a chapter in the anthology Rod Bush: Lessons from a Radical Black Scholar on Liberation, Love, and Justice, edited by Melanie E. L. Bush, and co-edited by Rose M. Brewer, Daniel Douglas, Loretta Chin, and Robert Newby (2019). In this chapter, Woodard discusses Rod Bush’s efforts, both intellectually and in the movement, to recognize the Black Radical tradition within the broad movement for liberation of all humankind. In his view, Bush worked tirelessly and effectively to insist upon the big picture, all the while recognizing the revolutionary role of African descended people in a world-system defined by white supremacy.
