Interracial Solidarities, Imperial Japan, and the U.S. Empire
This chapter recounts Hubert Harrison's call for a congress of the darker races that would serve as “an international center of cooperation from which strength may be drawn for the several sections of the world of color.” In conjunction with this call, a wave of migrations and radical politics likewise pulsated across the islands of Hawai'i. For instance, Japanese and Filipino workers were forging a local “colored international” against “capitalist imperialism” and initiated a massive labor strike in 1920 that reverberated across the Pacific. The chapter also shows that as radicals appeal for interracial movements against white supremacy and colonialism echoes around the world, the U.S. state reacted vigilantly and violently.
