COINTELPRO – How the FBI Sabotaged Black America, A Documentary by Gil Noble

As African Americans of all ages take to the streets in large numbers once again #blacklivesmatter to protest the police murder of Black men (and subsequent cover-up) in places like Ferguson Missouri and New York City, it is instructive to take a look back at why previous black mass movements and leaders went away. What the research shows is that the Black Liberation Movement of the 1960s didn't just go away by itself. It was intentionally destroyed by a very sophisticated counter-insurgency strategy, code name COINTELPRO,  initiated at the highest levels of the US government. The most prominent of the African American leaders like Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., Fred Hampton, Huey P. Newton, Robert F. Williams, Max Stanford, Assata Shakur, and many other leaders of the Black Liberation Movement…

Nina Simone was blunt about hand-wringers advising Black folks to ‘go slow’

Like most sane Black folks, I want Trump and his Republican Klan gone. Yesterday. We didn’t elect him. We are well aware that racism and white supremacy are deeply embedded in this nation’s foundation and we have been fighting against it since the time we were enslaved here, throughout Reconstruction and Jim Crow, and through the duration (ongoing) of the civil rights movement. We have had allies who were, and are, people of other races, and we are cognizant of the fact that unless white folks step up to the plate to correct what they have wrought, we’ll just have to keep on fighting. We are only 13% of this nation’s population.   We are not, however, going to tamp down our struggle for equality in order to soothe the feelings of white…

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBPeCQzHu5w     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbbcjn4d1cE  The March on Washington - Highpoint of the Civil Rights Movement Movements are like the ocean, with waves of high activity and periods of relative calm. The 1960's, like the 1920's before it, represented a wave of high activity in the African American political movement. Most think of the 60’s as the most turbulent period in American history. Some call it the unfinished Black Revolution. In many respects, it was like the Civil War, all over again. African Americans fought for their freedom during the Civil War.

The Explosive Black Power Movement

Stokely Carmichael - Black Power Speech 1966 (1_7).mp4 The Black Power Movement The Black Power Movement evolved from the intersection of the 1960's Southern-based Civil Rights Movement and  Black nationalist movements in the North. Its roots, however, go back as far as the  African American slave rebellions, which can be explored here:  http://www.blackpolitics.org/the-slave-rebellions-2/  Earlier movements throughout the twentieth century, such as the Garvey Movement of the 1920's  http://www.blackpolitics.org/the-1920s-and-the-garvey-movement/  ,  the Nation of Islam, the African Blood Brotherhood, and the Communist Party USA (when it advocated for self-determination of the African American nation in the Black Belt South), and the writings and teachings of Chinese revolutionary leader, Chairman Mao Tse Tung, were instrumental in helping to shape the ideological underpinnings of the Black Power Movement.
