#ClaudiaJones
In this essay, literary scholar Carole Boyce Davies critiques Cedric Robinson’s Black Marxism through the lens of Black left feminism, questioning the neglect of Black women intellectuals, including #ClaudiaJones, in Marxist/left scholarship

Having such a wonderful time in #Havana with @Tony_Tracy on the second day of our six-week-long #Cuba trip! 🇨🇺

Reminded of our earlier travels here in past years (like this video from our 2013 Havana trip).

Much has changed, but much remains the same.

One of the most profound changes in #Havana is something that we’d take for granted elsewhere: widespread accessibility of fairly fast internet (including, over the past year-and-a-bit, high-speed LTE internet by cellphone).

Honestly, LTE cell service in #Cuba is a game-changer.
When @Tony_Tracy & I travelled to #Havana for the first time together for a couple of weeks in 2011, wifi service was unavailable except in fairly pricy 4-and-5 star hotels & resorts, and it was dreadfully slow even then. I remember us paying as much as 5 CUC per hour!

1) I am sure the uptick in transnational cartels falling AFTER Ohr was no longer the boss is a coincidence. @BenKTallmadge @CarrollQuigley1 @MadAddictSport @909946zill @Joestradamus91 @jodieiscool1 @almostjingo @ECEverett1

#TimelinesMatter & this one makes Bruce be like
2) A timeline here will show all the other networks being dismantled prior to Ohr being caught up and the uptick.

3) 44 would never have been able to do this without Ohr's service to our nation.
