An acclaimed chronicler of the Civil Rights Movement, Peniel Joseph presents this sweeping overview of a key component of the struggle for racial equality-the Black Power movement. This is the story of the men and women who sacrificed so much to begin a more vocal and radical push for social change in the 1960s and 1970s. "... a dramatic story, carefully researched, and deserving of our attention." -Howard Zinn, New York Times best-selling author

"Noted Civil Rights historian Peniel E. Joseph has aptly subtitled this work "A Narrative History of Black Power in America." Focusing primarily on Stokely Carmichael, Huey P. Newton, and Malcolm X, the author puts forward a new interpretation of an important social movement. Beresford Bennett gives a subdued narration of this narrative history. Rather than trying to match the dramatic writing with an equally dramatic vocalization, Bennett calmly and eloquently presents this tumultuous period of American history. The breadth of the work alone makes it a worthy addition to the libraries of American history buffs. Further, Bennett's reading also makes this hotly debated period of African-American and American history both an accessible and fascinating audio experience for any listener. P.R.
