Dr. Eddie Bonilla: Exploring the impactful history of the League of Revolutionary Struggle —
Ramona discusses activism among communities of color with Dr. Eddie Bonilla. In this episode, Dr. Bonilla explores the far-reaching influence of activists from a multiracial organization known as the League of Revolutionary Struggle, which existed from 1978-1990. The organization was led primarily by Asian American women but was attuned to the struggles of local Latina/o, African American, and Asian American struggles particularly in labor, education, and electoral politics. As Eddie discusses, these activists utilized Marxism as a common political language to create solidarities against neoliberalism and Reaganism. Many are still on the frontlines battling injustices today. Dr. Eddie Bonilla is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Latinx Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Originally from South Gate, California, Dr. Bonilla currently makes Pittsburgh his home.
