An acclaimed chronicler of the Civil Rights Movement, Peniel Joseph presents this sweeping overview of a key component of the struggle for racial equality-the Black Power movement. This is the story of the men and women who sacrificed so much to begin a more vocal and radical push for social change in the 1960s and 1970s.

    " A really good history of the black power movement. It actually gets beyond the mystique and explains what the activists actually did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margot | 12/11/2013

    " Informative, historical book with a much different point of view than the textbook narrative often associated with this sector of American history "

    " i'll be honest. i can't remember anything about this book. i do however now hate whitey A LOT more than I did before I read it. If I only knew why. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 3/22/2013

    " A narrative that was a little hard to follow and decipher the main points he was trying to make. Had some interesting stories though that I've never read about the black power movement including some of Malcolm X's activities towards the end of his life and MLK's interaction with some SNCC members "

    " INterseting, but quite repetitive... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denell | 8/12/2012

    " Attempts to make a connection between the civil rights movement and the black power movement. The books is a compilation of stories of black leaders. "

    " thanks justin "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 8/6/2011

    " I read this as research for a television show I'm currently developing. It's certainly informative but very very dry. Just what I needed as a crash course into the historical world of the black power movement. "

    " Good introduction to the ideas and the times, but the book is scatter shot and Joseph is far too laudatory. Everything Malcolm X and Carmichael says is portrayed as brilliant. Best part is the Black Panthers, because there is nuisance. "

    " Great survey of the often overlooked aspects of the Black Power movement and it's impact on the broader Civil Rights struggle. "
