dc.description.abstractThis research examines the ideologies and practices of white radical leftist organizations such as Students for a Democratic Society, it's various iterations, and The White Panther Party. This is accomplished through analyzing their interactions with organizations like The Black Panther Party, the Black Liberation Army, and the Young Lords. Through analyzing the ideologies of class and race within these organizations and the systemic tendencies of the United States government as it pertains to retaliation against them, this project seeks to further understand the dynamics of cooperation between groups and individuals within radical liberation movements through both non violent and violent modes of solidarity. In this research, the most threatening mode of revolution reveals itself to be enacting modes of solidarity which build cooperation across racial and ideological differences. In researching these modes of solidarity, the author examines the ways in which government action against radical anti-establishment and radical liberation movements affected the cooperation between groups within these movements. Through the use of theories from Fanon, Memmi, Ahmed and others, the author analyzes how the evolutions observed in some radical groups from non-violence into violent militarism grew out of, and even appropriated methods from, state violence.en_US
