Stokely Speaks: From Black Power to Pan-Africanism
Product DescriptionBy Stokely Carmichael [Kwame Ture] Foreword by Mumia Abu-Jamal
In the speeches and articles collected in this book, written and delivered between 1965 and 1971, the great black activist, organizer, and freedom fighter Stokely Carmichael traces dramatic changes in his own consciousness and in that of black Americans, from the Civil Rights Movement through Black Power to Pan-Africanism.
In these essays on racism, Black Power, solidarity with oppressed masses, and the pitfalls of conventional liberalism, Carmichael insisted that blacks resist white brainwashing and redefine themselves, recognizing Africa as the motherland. He honestly and rigorously explored questions that still confront the black world and pointed out the need for an ideology of black and African liberation, unification, and transformation.
