From the Dust Jacket: The trial of Angela Yvonne Davis in connection with the prisoner revolt by three black prisoners on August 7, 1970 at the Marin County Courthouse will be remembered as one of America's most historic political trials, and no one can tell the story better than Miss Davis herself. This book is also perhaps the most comprehensive and thorough analysis of that increasingly important symbol-the political prisoner. Of her trial, Miss Davis writes, "I am charged with three capital offenses-murder, kidnapping and conspiracy. My life is at stake in this case-not simply the life of a lone individual, but a life which has been given over to the struggles of my people, a life which belongs to Black people who are tired of poverty, and racism, of the unjust imprisonment of tens of thousands of our brothers and sisters." "I stand before this court", she declares, "as a target of a political frame up which, far from pointing to my culpability, implicates the State of California as an agent of political repression. I declare publicly before the court, before the people of this country, that I am innocent of all charges which have been leveled against me by the State of California." On the central theme of this book Miss Davis contends that "the offense of the political prisoner in his political boldness, his consistent challenges-legally or extra-legally-of fundamental social wrongs fostered and reinforced by the state. He has opposed unjust laws and exploitative, racist social conditions in general, with the ultimate aim of transforming these laws and the society into an order harmonious with the material and spiritual need and interests of the vast majority of its members." Regarding his own defense, Ruchell Magee, the only prisoner who survived the same revolt and one of the many impressive contributors in this invaluable volume which includes George Jackson, Fleeta Drumgo, John Cluthcette, James Baldwin, Bobby Seale and Ericka Huggins, states, "For over seven years I have been forced to stay in slavery on fraudulent pleas of guilty, made by attorneys, court-appointed attorneys, over my objection, over my plea of not guilty, and over my testimony of not guilty."
Lift every voice and sing : a celebration of the Negro national anthem( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pasted into Bibles, schoolbooks, and hearts, "Lift Every Voice and Sing," written by J. Rosamond Johnson and James Weldon Johnson in 1900, has become one of the most beloved songs in the African American community - taught for years in schools, churches, and civic organizations. Adopted by the NAACP as its official song in the 1920s and sung throughout the civil rights movement, it is still heard today at gatherings across America." "In celebration of the song's centennial, Julian Bond and Sondra Kathryn Wilson have collected one hundred essays by artists, educators, politicians, and activists reflecting on their personal experiences with the song. Also featuring photos from historical archives, Lift Every Voice and Sing is a moving illustration of the African American experience in the past century."--Jacket

The two nations of black America( Visual )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this Frontline report, correspondent Henry Louis Gates , Jr., a Harvard scholar, explores the gaping chasm between the upper and lower classes of black America and probes why it has happened: "How have we reached this point where we have both the largest black middle class and the largest black underclass in our history?" His personal essay draws a picture of growing black success along with the deepening black despair and argues that black upper classes now have more in common with their white colleagues and peers than with those they have left behind in the inner cities. Reviewing the thirty years that have passed since the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., Gates shows that while many blacks reaped the reward of the civil rights movement and affirmative action and gained middle class status, just as many were left behind in an expanding underclass of poverty. The program features interviews with prominent blacks such as Cornel West, William Julius Wilson and Maulana Karenga as well as civil rights veterans like Eldridge Cleaver, Angela Davis and Julian Bond. While they differ on historical interpretation, they all agree that the next phase of the black liberation struggle must be focused on economic deprivation and the class divide."--Container

This light of ours : activist photographers of the civil rights movement by Leslie G Kelen( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement is a paradigm-shifting publication that presents the Civil Rights Movement through the work of nine activist photographers - men and women who chose to document the national struggle against segregation and other forms within the movement. Unlike images produced by photojournalists, who covered breaking news events, these photographers lived within the movement - and documented its activities by focusing on the student activists and local people who together made it happen. The core of the book is a selection of 151 black-and-white photographers Bob Adelman, George Ballis, Bob Fitch, Bob Fletcher, Matt Herron, David Prince, Herbert Randall, Maria Varela, and Tamio Wakayama. Images are grouped around four movement themes and convey SNCC's organizing strategies, resolve in the face of violence, impact on local and national politics, and influence on the nation's consciousness. The photographs and texts of This Light of Ours reminds us that the movement was a battleground, that the battle was successfully fought by thousands of "ordinary" Americans amongst whom were the nation's courageous youth, and that the movement's moral vision and impact continue to shape our lives."--Jacket
