Defining Black Power 3-CD Set
The classic African-American studies standard from Pacifica Radio Archives, used in classroom curricula around the world. This series of three CDs begins in 1954 when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on an Alabama bus: a simple yet courageous act that ushered in the modern-day civil rights movement. But as these historic voices reveal, the actions of Rosa Parks also sparked a debate over which strategy African Americans should use to gain equality and human rights: integration, separation or revolution? This 3-CD set serves as a history lesson for the youngand a reminder to those who lived through those timesthat the issue of African American political power is complex and the field of thought on the subject is diverse.
