Between 1927 and 1930, African diaspora radicals, based in the United States, the Caribbean, and elsewhere, came together to mount radical and transnational challenges to colonialism, imperialism, and white supremacy around the world. Black radicals like George Padmore and Richard B. Moore traveled to participate in the International Congress against Colonial Oppression and Imperialism organized by the Comintern in Brussels in 1927 and worked to continue international organizing against imperialism in all its forms afterward. These radicals showed enthusiasm, for a time, about working with an international communist movement that appeared pledged to an anticolonial program. However, they struggled to build and maintain their agency as black people committed to black liberation in the face of the uncertainties and shifts of state policy.
