Spread the love           What Sojourner Truth may have been most famous for, not unlike the firebrand anarchist Emma Goldman, was her public speaking. Illiterate throughout her life, she nevertheless had a remarkable gift for language, and from 1840s onwards, went on several speaking tours with both women’s rights groups and abolitionists.

Spread the love           It is no time for a blame game. And yet it may be not be inappropriate to do a reality check. The agonising experience has put the fear of God back into the Malayali mind, which he had long exchanged for material and matter. And God, who had lost his own country to […]

Spread the love           Perhaps very few Marxists and admirers of Marx know that Marx’s contributions were not at all limited to economics and politics.
