We read widely in letters, speeches, novels, journalism, poetry, films, and other genres, from authors including Toussaint Louverture, Robespierre, Olympe de Gouges, Baron de Vastey, Flaubert, Rimbaud, CLR James, Frantz Fanon, Marx, Aimé and Suzanne Césaire, Guy Debord, and JL Godard. We also read political theory from authors such as Alain Badiou and Jacques Rancière.
