History Taster - The U.S. Black Power Movement Revisited
From Ellen Englefield
Join this LIVE taster event! The recent surge of BlackLivesMatter protests in the United States has carried strong echoes of the late 1960s and early 1970s, when the Black Power Movement marked a new direction in the African American freedom struggle. What was the Black Power Movement, and how should we understand its significance within the longer history of U.S. racial justice activism? A wealth of impressive studies has posed these questions in recent years, offering deeper understanding of a movement that had often been caricatured and dismissed. This lecture will explore some of the innovative ways in which historians have approached and understood the Black Power Movement and its legacies.
