The Marxist Student Federation took the time, throughout Black History Month, to learn and teach about the black struggle. From meetings to articles, videos and infographics, we tried to delve into the oppression of black people and how to get rid of it. Black history is not something which can be understood quickly, therefore we spent every day posting. Here are the posts we made during week one. This week centred on black history specifically, discussing the origins of slavery black liberation as well as the abolitionists.
