Black Awakening in Capitalist America
Author: Robert Allen
Publisher: Africa World Press: 1992
Black Awakening in Capitalist America is a classic study of the Black liberation movement of the 1960s. Examining Black Power and black capitalism, the student and radical movements, nationalists and integrationists, Allen argues that Black America, hemmed in by racism, constitutes an underdeveloped, domestic colony within the United States. Black Awakening in Capitalist America is essential reading to understand the origins and development of the contemporary black struggle for freedom.
