Black Awakening in Capitalist America: An Analytic History by Robert L. Allen

Black Awakening in Capitalist America: An Analytic History, is a classic study of the Black liberation movement of the 1960s. Examining Black Power and black capitalism, the student and radical movements, nationalist and integrationists, Allen argues that Black America, hemmed in by racism, constitutes an underdeveloped, domestic colony within the United States. He explains how corporate America responded with neocolonial tactics of cooptation and repression that seriously undermined the movement.
