This work is a product of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements in America during the 1960's. Black Theology & Black Power is James H.

As he explains in an introduction written for this edition, "I wanted to speak on behalf of the voiceless black masses in the name of Jesus whose gospel I believed had been greatly distorted by the preaching and theology of white churches."--Publisher's description

Risks of faith : the emergence of a Black theology of liberation, 1968-1998 by James H Cone( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the 1969 publication of the now-classic Black Theology and Black Power, James H. Cone took the Civil Rights struggle to the very soul of America, challenging the theological community with his proposal that Christ's message was in fact one of liberation for oppressed people, but particularly for black Americans. Redemption for Christian white America, and indeed all those in power, lay in the end of racism and the rectification of its debilitating legacy." "Risks of Faith offers for the first time the best of Cone's essays - including several new pieces - and represents the breadth of his life's work."--Jacket
The diary of Malcolm X, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, 1964 by Malcolm X( Book )

The heart of the book is Malcolm's impressions, his personal observations on the people he meets and the circumstances he encounters, his own feelings of trepidation and inadequacy. There are segments in which the book will be complemented by passages from Malcolm's autobiography, though in our book his immediate reactions have not been disturbed by editors. And in several ways and instances the diary amplifies the autobiography
