    First published in 1967. This revolutionary work defined a phrase that had become a central part of the Civil Rights vocabulary. Stokely Carmichael and Charles V. Hamilton exposed the depths of systemic racism in America and provided aviable political framework for reform. African-Americans could no longer afford to believe that their liberation would come through traditional political processes: true and lasting social change would only be accomplished through their unity and independence from the pre-existing order. The book continues to be of relevance to the racial climate today. Bibiography, Index. 230p.

    From Nat Turner to Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Jesse Jackson, from the rural South to the Northern ghetto, black ministers have always been the leaders of their people. Here is the first in-depth portrait of black America's preachers, from the least known to the most influential. Their story begins in the time of slavery and ends with their fears and hopes for the future. It is told by a distinguished professor who, with Stokely Carmichael, wrote Black Power.
