Dual Power: A Simple Explanation

Jan 27, 2021

Dual power can be explained as the building of a transitional program for political, social, and economic transformation. Itcreates survival programs to oppose state power and creates a new type of autonomous public sector when the state fails the people.

This is how to go beyond protest to building an anarchist societal infrastructure. 

JoNina Abron-Ervin is a former editor of The Black Panther newspaper, author of Driven by the Movement: Activists of the Black Power Era, and a co-founder of the Black Autonomy Federation.

Lorenzo Komboa Ervin is the author of Anarchism and the Black Revolution, a co-founder of the Black Autonomy Federation, and a former member of the Black Panther Party.

This podcast is produced by a collaboration between writer William C. Anderson (@williamcson) and members of Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation (@BRRN_Fed).
