Lecture Description

To understand Black Power, we have to look not to its iconic spokesmen or dramatic confrontations with authority but to the work of people whose stories have never been told. This lecture chronicles Black Power as an adaptive coalitional politics that took the urgency of the civil rights movement to a global stage–all in the hands of people whose deeds have so often escaped popular attention. This lecture traces the lines from the 20th century Black Power movement to the Black Lives Matter movement of today.
