We are just off the Bus, in Greenwood, Mississippi, standing in the park where in 1966 Stokely Carmicheal (Kwame Ture) gave the speech that brought the concept of black power into public consciousness. What did it mean? Why did it frighten so many whites while worrying some black activists and empowering others? More importantly, what is the connection between black power and black lives matter?
Bob Zellner, longtime civil rights activist and UW student Michael Moynihan, student leader of the civil rights pilgrimage and black lives matter activist talk to the group about the links from past to present.
Warning, there are a couple of swear words.
