An argument against the liberal paradigm of allyship in favour of movements based on Black self-determination

Blackout Tuesday was the pivotal moment, Andray Domise argues, when street-level protests were uploaded to corporate boardrooms and the grassroots protest movement begun after the murder of George Floyd turned from rebellion against white supremacist state violence to a corporatized love-in—what Malcom X dubbed “the circus.” In On Killing a Revolution, Domise analyzes the co-opting by liberal interests of Black liberation movements ranging from Haiti to Burkina Faso to Canada and the United States and argues for a new kind of revolution based on Black self-determination instead of assimilation into bourgeois white liberal politics.
