The intellectual history of black Marxism in the United States has focused overwhelmingly on how black Marxists approached the race question. This focus has tended to exceptionalize these thinkers, occluding both their embeddedness in other streams of thought and their broader visions of social theory. This chapter demonstrates the yields of a broader lens on black Marxism through a discussion of the work of W. E. B. Du Bois and Oliver Cromwell Cox. Specifically, it focuses on the theories of democracy developed in their respective major works, Black Reconstruction in America and Caste, Class & Race.
