    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The article discusses the way in which racism and solidarity informed leftist and radical politics in early-20th-century Los Angeles, California. Focus is given to the ways in which the Left's understanding of race brought about support for cultural affinity within the state's labor organizing and anarchist movements, particularly those of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) labor organization.
