ABOUT THE BOOK:

The first book to comprehensively examine how the Black Panther Party has directly shaped the practices and ideas of grassroots activism in the decades since its decline, Black Power Afterlives represents a major scholarly contribution as well as an important resource for today’s activists. Through its focus on the enduring impact of the Black Panther Party, this volume expands the historiography of Black Power studies beyond the 1960s-70s and serves as a bridge between the studies of the BPP during its organizational existence and studies of present-day Black activism, allowing today’s readers and organizers to situate themselves in a long lineage of liberation movements. 

Black Power Afterlives brings together essays by expert scholars as well as activists and former Panthers, discussing the Black Panther Party’s impact in areas such as prisons, policing, art, global Pan-Africanism, spirituality and healing, and ecosocialism.
