About this course

Encompassing leading figures and organizations, key events, and the psychology of The Black Power Movement (BPM) from 1965 to 1972, Leonard Moore returns us to a time when the Black Power Movement inspired Black Americans to celebrate a positive sense of Black Identity, and regain control over Black history, communities, and institutions. While many white Americans felt threatened at the call of Black Power, it represented a slogan that resonated throughout American culture. In fact, nearly every mainstream institution would be affected by the BPM.

From The Nation of Islam and Malcolm X to the Black Panther Party and the quest for Black political power, our one-week course offers students insight into a pivotal moment in history that is ever more relevant today.
