The Challenge of Blackness

This chapter examines the IBW's publications, Monthly Report and Black World View. These publications show how the IBW moved beyond ideological sectarianism, as well as the growing dissension among Black activists. The periodicals were the IBW's direct link to grassroots organizations. The chapter also discusses how the IBW mediated the sectarian debate between Black Nationalists and Marxists in the grassroots activist community. The IBW relied on veteran activists Walter Rodney, James Boggs, and Grace Lee Boggs to guide the organization through the difficult debates that ultimately destroyed other grassroots organizations. Moreover, with the assistance of Rodney and the Boggs, it used their publications to provide a blueprint for other organizations to mediate the race or class debate.
