No Easy Victories: African Liberation and American Activists Over a Half Century, 1950-2000 (Google eBook)
William Minter, Gail Hovey, Charles E. Cobb (Jr.)
William Minter, 2008 - Africa - 248 pages
African news making headlines today is dominated by disaster: wars, famine, HIV. Those who respond - from stars to ordinary citizens - are learning that real solutions require more than charity. This book provides a comprehensive, panoramic view of US activism in Africa from 1950 to 2000, activism grounded in a common struggle for justice. It portrays organisations, activists and networks that contributed to African liberation and, in turn, shows how African struggles informed US activism, including the civil rights and black power movements.
