MEDIA REVIEWS

'A wide range of notable scholars, mainly historians, authored these 16 essays focusing primarily upon changing notions of the black freedom movement of the 1950s-60s. Diverse essays range from the origins of the Black Panther Party in Oakland to the influence of Black Power on Asian American radicalism and radical black labor organizing in the Detroit auto industry. Recommended.' CHOICE

'This wide-ranging collection of essays affirms the profound national and global influence of the postwar black freedom movement, while also illuminating local struggles, radical movements, and hitherto under-researched efforts by activists to pursue black power agendas within the context of anti-poverty programs. Scholars of the movement will find this an informative, eye-opening and provocative book.' - Kevin K. Gaines, Robert Hayden Collegiate Professor of History and Afroamerican and African Studies, College of Literature, Science, and Arts, The Center for Afroamerican and African Studies, University of Michigan

'Manning Marable was one of the most talented and prolific scholars of the Black experience since W.E.B. DuBois. He was also one of the most generous. It is therefore a fitting legacy that his posthumous volume, co-edited with Elizabeth Kai Hinton, offers a platform for an amazing roster of scholars to present their work. This book is eclectic and engaging and provides an excellent teaching tool for courses on the twentieth century Black Freedom Movement.' - Barbara Ransby, professor of African American studies, history, and gender and women's studies, University of Illinois at Chicago

'An indispensable collection of cutting edge scholarship on the Civil Rights and Black Power movements. These young historians unsettle conventional wisdom and make us look at the last half century in fresh and original ways.' - Martha Biondi, African American studies, Northwestern University, and author of The Black Revolution on Campus (2012)
