Black political organizations in the post-civil rights era( )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 2,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation For a variety of reasons, contemporary black political organizations have generally been ignored in the scholarly literature on American interest groups. Johnson (political science, U. San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador) and Stanford (formerly political science and African American Studies, U. of Georgia) present this collection of 11 papers as a corrective. The contributions are diverse in subject and argument, with examinations of the leadership style of the Nation of Islam, the history and ideology of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the persistence of welfare rights activism, and the political involvement of black churches.

If we must die : African American voices on war and peace( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If We Must Die is a narrative and compilation of commentaries by African American leaders, intellectuals, and average citizens on wars fought by the United States. The book uses the rich material of political and social commentary as it seeks to articulate the concerns, mood, and memory of African Americans in the context of global political realities." "Organized chronologically, by America's major wars, If We Must Die offers an impressively wide array of viewpoints from such diverse figures as Molly Pitcher, Phyllis Wheatley, Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells, Paul Robeson, Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and more." "Each section begins with an introduction that describes the war, its causes, the African American condition during the war, and the context for the African American response. The commentaries included in this book are based on their significance to each war, the era, and which best represented a particular point of view."--Jacket
Nine lives of a Black Panther : a story of survival by Wayne Pharr( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early morning hours of December 8, 1969, three hundred officers of the newly created elite paramilitary unit know as SWAT initiated a violent battle with a handful of Los Angeles-based members of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (BPP). Five hours and five thousand rounds of ammunition later, three SWAT team members and three Black Panthers lay wounded. For the Panthers and the community that supported them, the shootout symbolized a victory. A key contributor to that victory was the nineteen-year-old rank-and-file member of the BPP Wayne Pharr. Nine Lives of a Black Panther tells Wayne's riveting story of the Los Angeles branch of the BPP and gives a blow-by-blow account of how it prepared for and survived the massive military-style attack. He illuminates the history of one of the most dedicated, dynamic, vilified, and targeted chapters of the BPP, filling in a missing piece of Black Panther history and, in the process, creating an engaging and hard-to-put-down memoir about a time and place that holds tremendous fascination for readers interested in African American militancy"--
Black power encyclopedia : from "Black is beautiful" to urban uprisings( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlike the Civil Rights Movement's emphasis on the rhetoric and practice of nonviolence and social and political goal of integration, Black Power was defined by the promotion of Black self-determination, Black consciousness, independent Black politics, and the practice of armed self-defense. Black Power changed communities, curriculums, and culture in the United States and served as an inspiration for social justice internationally. This unique two-volume set provides readers with an understanding of Black Power's important role in the turbulence, social change, and politics of the 1960s and 1970s in America and how the concepts of the movement continue to influence contemporary Black politics, culture, and identity." -- Publisher's description
