Dozens of African Americans left Jim Crow Era America to live, work, and visit Stalin's Soviet Union. Why did the Soviet Union (during the traumatic time of famine and forced collectivization) represent a country of opportunity for America's oppressed? What did it mean to be African American in a place that did not, legally, see race?

Kimberly St. Julian-Varnon will investigate how experience in the Soviet Union affected how these African Americans understood their identity as Black people.
