During the 1970s and 1980s, Marxist-Leninist organizations in the United States debated “the national question.” Chicana/o, Asian American, and African American groups, emerging from the Civil Rights-Black Power movements of the 1960s, created a new multiracial communist organization, the League of Revolutionary Struggle. The League became part of global debates over nationalism/nationhood within 20th century communist movements, making “the national question” central to their organizing of immigrants, women, and workers.
