About this book

This groundbreaking volume examines the transnational dimensions of Black Power - how Black Power thinkers and activists drew on foreign movements and vice versa how individuals and groups in other parts of the world interpreted 'Black Power,' from African liberation movements to anti-caste agitation in India to indigenous protests in New Zealand.

Reviews

'This path-breaking collection offers new insights into the global resonances of Black Power in such unexpected locales as New Zealand, Israel, and India, while also situating the US Black Power movement and its antecedents within the political and cultural traditions, and collective memory, of the African diaspora. Scholars and lay readers alike will find this a rewarding collection that dramatically transforms their understandings of the movement.' - Penny Von Eschen, professor of History, University of Michigan, USA
