Forum is a publication of Boston Review, an independent and nonprofit public space for robust discussion of ideas and culture. Animated by hope and committed to equality, we believe in the power of collective reasoning and imagination to create a more just world.
Our first Forum issue just went to press, and we can't wait to share it with you!
What will you find? A newer, sleeker magazine that highlights our strengths and improves our readability, with a greater emphasis on our signature feature—our forum—all with the same dedication to nuanced, thoughtful discussion that you expect from Boston Review. In this issue, titled Race Capitalism Justice, Walter Johnson, Harvard historian and author of the acclaimed River of Dark Dreams, argues that slavery is central to the history of capitalism. Drawing on the black radical tradition, from W. E. B. Du Bois to Cedric Robinson, he asks what our idea of justice would look like if it took seriously the history of racial oppression.
