South African black and working class political and social movements have a long history of relationship with movements in the US, dating from the early parts of the 20th century. These links and relationship went through the civil rights movements, the black power and black consciousness movements and the general anti-apartheid struggle. The Black Lives Matter and the elections have generated interest among activists, and we hope this discussion will contribute to movement building in South Africa through reflections on the US experience.
