Perry on this radical Caribbean and American worker-intellectual who organized with the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), was a tireless editor and writer on issues of race, class and justice, and later founded the International Colored Unity League and advocated a separate black state within the United States. He died at just 44 years of age.
