Black Power burst seemingly out of nowhere in 1966 - a maelstrom of racial pride, anger, and violence that threatened the civil rights movement and challenged the very fabric of American society. Or at least that's how many have come to understand the story. In truth, the historical phenomenon of Black Power is older, richer, and more global than is commonly understood. From Harlem and Oakland to India and Israel, it inspired and defined political movements that challenged boundaries throughout the world. In this truly groundbreaking volume, figures as varied as Angela Davis and Stevie Wonder are considered alongside lesser-known Black Power organizations like the Polynesian and Dalit Panthers, illuminating the transnational contours of the Black Power movement.
