I listened to the Griot audio version of this book, narrated by Beresford Bennett. It provided what I was looking for, a broad overview of the black power movement. This book covers covers primarily the 1960s & 70s , which is basically the beginning of my life. It is helpful to me that the author grounds his discussion of black power in the context of the thread of separatism/nationalism that runs through African-American experience in the US, as well as in the beginnings of the non-aligned movement of newly independent African and Asian states that began in the 1950s with the Bandung conference in Indonesia. Thus, while "black power" is a term coined by Stokely Carmichael in the 60s while he was a part of SNCC & the Civil Rights movement, the concept of black nationalism historically precedes the Civil Rights movement and black power is separate from, rather than a reaction to, the civil rights movement.
