St. Croix, Virgin Islands-born, Harlem-based Hubert Harrison (1883)-1927) was described by Joel A. Rogers as "the formost Afro-American intellect of his time" and by A. Philip Randolph as "the father of Harlem Radicalism." He is the only person to play unique, signal roles in the largest class radical movement (socialism) and the largest race radical movement (the New Negro/Garvey) movement of his era. Harrison was the foremost Black organizer, agitator, and theoretician ofthe Socialist Party of New York, the founder of the "New Negro" movement, the editor of the "Negro World," and the principal radical influence on the Garvey movement. His political activism was influenced by his early research on reconstruction, slavery, and Lincoln. This presentation will discuss Harrison's research and notebooks on Reconstruction, the importance of his understanding of enslaved Black labor as proletarian, and his lectures and writings on Lincoln. Particular attention will be paid tothis"Lincoln and Liberty: Fact Versus Fiction" series of talks (firstdeliverd in 1911 and later printed in the "Negro World" in 1921, which Harrison used to urge African Americans to break from the Republican Party and to move towards greater political independence.
