Interview Leo Zeilig on Walter Rodney
October 21, 2022
Jason Stearns and Fred Bauma
We interview Leo Zeiling on the life and legacy of Guyanese scholar, activist, and writer Walter Rodney. Rodney's classic "How Europe Underdeveloped Africa" is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, a great occasion to read Zeilig's "A Revolutionary for Our Time: The Walter Rodney Story," which was published this year.We talk about Rodney's legacy, his understanding of race, his approach to international solidarity, and his theory of how Africa's fate has been tethered to capitalist development in the West.
