Summary "In Modern Black Nationalism, William L. Van Deburg has collected the most influential speeches, pamphlets, and articles that trace the development of black nationalism in the twentieth century." "This documentary anthology seeks to chart a course between hazardous pedagogical alternatives - neither ignoring nor overstating the case for any one of the various manifestations of black nationalism. Modern Black Nationalism begins with Marcus Garvey, the acknowledged father of the twentieth-century movement, and showcases the work of more than forty prominent thinkers including Louis Farrakhan, Elijah Muhammad, Maulana Karenga, the founder of Kwanzaa, Amiri Baraka, and Molefi Asante. Rare pamphlets distributed by organizations such as the Black Panther Party, articles from underground magazines, and memos from governmental officials offer a fresh look at the roots and the manifestations of this movement. Van Deburg contextualizes each of the essays, providing the reader with in-depth historical background."--BOOK JACKET
