Black radical tradition

Sticking a good article by Adam Hudson here for future reference.

"Slavery transferred wealth from black labor to white property owners because African slaves were not paid for their work. For centuries, slavery allowed whites - including those who did not own slaves - to amass wealth for their communities, while blacks were politically and economically oppressed. This laid the foundation for a massive wealth gap between blacks and whites that persists to this day, more than a century and a half after slavery's demise."
