Black Power: The Politics of Liberation by Kwame Ture & Charles V. Hamilton

This book represents the authors initial analysis of the struggle for Africans in the United States. It discusses using tactics of radical reform such as community control over various institutions, self-sufficiency, and coined the term “institutional racism”. The new edition of this book features an afterword by the authors which recounts this initial analysis, acknowledges some of the limitations and errors, and the authors’ understanding that a Pan-African revolution is the only way to struggle for true liberation for African people all over the world. Black Power provides important analysis and lessons from which we can develop our understandings of the work that still must be done.
