C.L.R. James’ visit to Dublin in 1935
In 1935, Trinidadian Marxist C.L.R. James, a leading figure in the Trotskyist movement in Britain at the time, and an important figure in pan-Africanism, visited Dublin to speak about the Italian invasion of Abyssinia (modern-day Ethiopia).
James would meet Nora Connolly O’Brien and the Irish visit would make a significant impact on him.
Later he would write about the impact of James Connolly and the 1916 Rising on himself (see here).
Well worth reading is the piece Donal Fallon has just written about the visit, see here.
