"Rychetta Watkins's book qualifies as a must-read for anyone interested in the rich history of Afro-Asian political and cultural formations. She offers a highly persuasive account of how the revolutionary thought of Fanon and Mao was taken up by African American and Asian American activists and writers in the 1960s and 1970s. She cogently conveys the formidable vision of social change that advocates of Black and Yellow Power promoted--a vision that remains, she eloquently argues, as relevant today as when it emerged."
--Daniel Y. Kim, author of Writing Manhood in Black and Yellow: Ralph Ellison, Frank Chin, and the Literary Politics of Identity
"This spirited book traces important footsteps left by black and Asian writers, radicals and cultural workers bound by common dreams of change and revolution. Rychetta Watkins forges a stirring mode of guerilla scholarship to remind us of how the battle for power on the streets of the 1960s changed the university forever."
--Bill V. Mullen, coeditor (with Cathryn Watson) of W. E. B. Du Bois on Asia: Crossing the World Color Line
