Drs. Jared Ball and Peniel Joseph debate the meaning of Black Power as defined in his work, Dark Days and Bright Nights: From Black Power to Barack Obama.*  We also invite those interested to listen HERE to our discussion with Dr. Quito Swan about his work on Black Power for an update and more appropriate reflection on that history.

    I guess Black Power can mean anything now according to Dr. Joseph. What is his agenda?!

      Yuuuup.

      Dude is re-configuring Black Power such that it is wholly unrecognizable from the internationalist, Pan-Afrikanist, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist and anti-white supremacist Black Power trajectory that Kwame Ture and Malcolm X were very clearly on. What is clear is that obama’s version of “Black Power” cannot be reconciled with the radical tradition that preceded him and is, quite frankly, an extension of u.s. white supremacist, capitalist imperialism.
