"Black Power, The Politics of Liberation in America," 1967

Summary

By the late-1960s, some young African Americans became frustrated with continued discrimination and the slow pace of economic gains. Stokely Carmichael and Charles Hamilton tapped into this frustration and promoted "Black Power" -- the call for African Americans to establish their own place in society, using force if necessary. This book outlines the systematic racism at the heart of this dissatisfaction.
