In 1917, people across the world bore witness to what seemed impossible. Through organization and determination, the workers and peasants in Russia rose up against the Tsarist regime, took power into their own hands, and began the arduous journey of the revolutionary transformation of their society. The global impact of the Bolshevik Revolution is evident, inspiring movements worldwide, from Cuba to Guinea-Bissau, and serving as proof of the potential for organized masses to create a government that reflects their aspirations. Join us on July 19 as we study the impact of the Bolshevik Revolution and the lessons it offers for revolutionaries on the African continent and diaspora.
