This research examines and explores the cultural aspects of radicalism among Black automobile workers in Detroit in the 1960s from the vantage point of autobiographical experience and a Marxian framework. It considers some of the cultural factors that accounted for the emergence of a revolutionary Black workers' organization. Among those factors were the lifestyles of the factory workers and the roles that kinship and friendship played in building a radical organization. Furthermore, it discusses particular ideas, values, and beliefs that are prevalent in Black culture which dispose Black workers more toward radicalism than their White counterparts. It also examines cultural factors which inhibited radical developments.
