Summary This work uncovers the global history of the Black Panther Party, a key post-civil-rights organization, and shows how an international approach broadens and changes our understanding of African American history.
Given the increasing public interest in the Black Panthers, this study seeks to go beyond the myths and public persona of the organization. It examines the party's connections and activites in a variety of places, including Cuba, Algeria, and Europe, and demands that we look beyond national boundaries when discussing African American protest movements of the 1960s and 1970s. In addition, it provides an in-depth look at Panther activities in a seemingly unlikely place, Halifax, Nova Scotia, where the Panthers served as the catalyst for significant changes in race relations.
This study also provides extensive background on the post-civil-rights era, including the effects of a shift to a post-industrial economy, the disillusionment of many African Americans with the traditional civil rights organizations, and the effects of large-scale national demographic changes.
