Black Power: The Politics of Liberation in America

Front Cover
Vintage Books, 1967 - Social Science - 230 pages
30 Reviews
In 1967, this revolutionary work exposed the depths of systemic racism in this country and provided a radical political framework for reform: true and lasting social change would only be accomplished through unity among African-Americans and their independence from the preexisting order. An eloquent document of the civil rights movement that remains a work of profound social relevance 25 years after it was first published.

Review: Black Power: The Politics of Liberation

User Review  - Erin - Goodreads

I have wanted to read this for nearly a decade. It felt so good to finally read it and have so much of it (in terms of alliances and power) relatable to situations happening today. If I ever taught history, this would be a requirement. Read full review
