    Chapter 10 Conclusion: Towards a Socialist AmericaReviews"Manning Marable examines developments in the political economy of racism in the United States and assesses shifts in the American Political terrain since the first edition….He is one of the most widely read Black progressive authors in the country."-Black Employment Journal"The reissue of Manning Marable’s How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America confirms that this is a classic work of political history and social criticism. Unfortunately, Marable’s blistering insights into racial injustice and economic inequality remain depressingly relevant.
