Description:
"Stokely Carmichael, the charismatic and controversial black activist, stepped onto the pages of history when he called for 'Black Power' during a speech one humid Mississippi night in 1966. Carmichael's life changed that day, and so did America's struggle for civil rights. 'Black Power' became the slogan of an era, provoking a national reckoning on race and democracy. In Stokely, preeminent civil rights scholar Peniel E. Joseph presents a ... biography of Carmichael, arguing that the young firebrand's evolution from nonviolent activist to Black Power revolutionary reflected the trajectory of a generation radicalized by the violence and unrest of the late 1960s. Fed up with the slow progress of the civil rights movement, Carmichael urged blacks to turn the rhetoric of freedom into a reality, inspiring countless African Americans to demand immediate political self-determination ... Stokely captures the life of the man whose uncompromising vision reshaped the struggle for African American equality"--Provided by publisher.
