ABOUT THE BOOK:

A sharp and insightful analysis of historic movements against racism in the United States — from the separatism of Marcus Garvey, to the militancy of Malcolm X and the Black Panther Party, to the eloquence of Martin Luther King, Jr., and much more — with essential lessons for today’s struggles.

In the forty years since the civil rights movement, many gains have been made — but there is still far to go to win genuine change. Here is a badly needed primer on the history and future of struggle against racism.

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
