Contributing sentiments towards policy:

55% : She was also engaged with the radical political currents of her age, including socialism.
51% : But when read in light of her "girls' talk" with Hansberry and the politics of her social circle, including James Baldwin, Stokely Carmichael, and Langston Hughes -- all activists that engaged with socialism -- these lyrics are a political statement.
44% : Rather, I imagine Hansberry and Simone talking about their own lives and the lives of other black women using a Marxist analysis that encompasses race, gender, and class; they would talk about how racism and capitalism created the lives of the women in the song, Aunt Sarah, Saffronia, Sweet Thing, and Peaches -- the lives of black women who find themselves constantly having to struggle, survive, and resist.
42% : This could be read as a response to the McCarthyite Red Scare, in which any talk of equality was conflated with communism and "anti-American" sentiment.
37% : Black nationalists sought economic independence and a new black state, separate from racist white America, although it was arguably unclear what that new state would look like, beyond a black version of capitalism.
