James’s rising black consciousness attracted him to some of the ideas of Marcus Garvey, which became inextricably intertwined with his feeling of connectedness to a “Pan-African” sensibility. Together with his boyhood (and lifelong) friend, Malcolm Nurse, who with the pseudonym George Padmore was to become one of the foremost exponents of Pan-Africanism, he eagerly read, at around age nineteen or twenty, the weekly Negro World, the newspaper of Marcus Garvey’s United Negro Improvement Association (UNIA).
Lenin and Trotsky had been right to warn their fellow communists that without a proletarian revolution on a world scale, the Russian proletariat was doomed to remain wageslaves.

For Hegel, the ultimate truth lies in the realm of spirit, in what he called the “world-spirit” that generates all creative activity by the human species, especially as manifested in religion, philosophy, and art. In this sense, he did make a distinction between natural and spiritual processes. The essence of Spirit is activity, while nature, although also dialectical, is a realm of being whose laws operate independently of volition and purpose. James belonged to a relatively small number of Marxists in the twentieth century who made full use of Hegelian thought in their writing.
