Black against empire : the history and politics of the Black Panther Party by Joshua Bloom( )

25 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 2,728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Oakland, California, in 1966, community college students Bobby Seale and Huey Newton armed themselves, began patrolling the police, and promised to prevent police brutality. Unlike the Civil Rights Movement that called for full citizenship rights for blacks within the U.S., the Black Panther Party rejected the legitimacy of the U.S. government and positioned itself as part of a global struggle against American imperialism. In the face of intense repression, the Party flourished, becoming the center of a revolutionary movement with offices in 68 U.S. cities and powerful allies around the world. Black against Empire is the first comprehensive overview and analysis of the history and politics of the Black Panther Party. The authors analyze key political questions, such as why so many young black people across the country risked their lives for the revolution, why the Party grew most rapidly during the height of repression, and why allies abandoned the Party at its peak of influence. Bold, engrossing, and richly detailed, this book cuts through the mythology and obfuscation, revealing the political dynamics that drove the explosive growth of this revolutionary movement, and its disastrous unraveling. Informed by twelve years of meticulous archival research, as well as familiarity with most of the former Party leadership and many rank-and-file members, this book is the definitive history of one of the greatest challenges ever posed to American state power."--Publisher's description

No coward soldiers : Black cultural politics and postwar America by Waldo E Martin( )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In black culture, Martin argues, we see the debate over the profound tension at the core of black identity: the duality of being at once both American and African. And in the transformative postwar period, the intersection between culture and politics became increasingly central to the African-American fight for equality. In freedom songs, in the exuberance of an Aretha Franklin concert, in Faith Ringgold's exploration of race and sexuality, the personal and social became the political." "Martin explores the place of black culture in this vision and examines the multiple ways in which various forms of expressive culture and various African-American cultural figures influences consciousness and helped effect social action. From the music of John Coltrane and James Brown to the visual arts of Jacob Lawrence and Betye Saar to the dance movements of Alvin Ailey and Arthur Mitchell, Martin discusses how, why, and with what consequences culture became a critical battle site in the freedom struggle. And in an epilogue, he draws the thread of black cultural politics into today's hip-hop culture."--Jacket
