"Based on new materials from the archives of the Communist International in Moscow as well as other established sources, Professor Hakim Adi has given us the very first book that explains the history and activities of The International Trade Union Committee of Negro Workers (ITUCNW) in relation to the attainment of black emancipation, the role of such leading figures as George Padmore, the nuanced discussions within the communist movement on Pan Africanism and how to attain liberation from colonial domination. The book abounds with new insights, original reflections, fresh interpretation and new conclusions on what was generally called the Negro Question." Toyin Falola, University Distinguished Teaching Professor and the Frances Higginbothom Nalle Centennial Professor, University of Texas in Austin
