"An important addition to the literature on the Black Power, Black Arts, and Black Aesthetic movements."--The Journal of African American History "A welcome addition to the growing body of scholarship about the Black Arts movement that had its roots in the widespread cultural and political ferment in African American life during the 1960s-70s. . . . Highly recommended."--Choiceshow more
