C. L. R. James
On Tuesday, we released a story on C. L. R. James written by guest writer Ed Hardiman. James is probably most well-known for his book entitled The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L’Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution published in 1938. While there has been much written about James, this article details his special connection with Hull.
