Fisher-Bennett Hall 112

Prof. Rao will discuss the recently published Memoirs of a Dalit Communist: The Many Worlds of R.B. More. R.B. More was a leader in the Ambedkarite movement and a member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). This memoir, written in Marathi, is here published for the first time in English. This is a rare work that brings together family history, political thought, and the social experience of urban workers whose lives are intertwined with the city they built, Bombay.
