Black Power Movement (African-American History) - Booklist
The goal of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was to end racial discrimination, but when the goal was not met, many become disillusioned with nonviolent resistance and gravitated to the black power movement…the information is interesting, and fact boxes (sometimes expanding the text and others introducing new topics) and photographs are plentiful throughout. Each chapter ends with a topic or scenario for further exploration on the publisher’s Core Library website. A time line of important events is appended. This overview could serve as a starting point for more in-depth research.
