Lecture Description

This lecture explores the the Black Power movement in the nation’s capital. Though seldom mentioned in popular discussions of Black Power, Washington, D.C. was a critical hub of Black Power organizing on par with Oakland, Newark, and New York. Paying special attention to neighborhood as well as national organizers, Musgrove explores the D.C. Black Power movement in all of its complexity.
