5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By James R. Tracy on March 16, 2012
Format: Hardcover
The Latin origin of the word "radical" is radix -- meaning the from, or of the root. By this measure, Pat Thomas' Listen Whitey! The Sights of Sounds of Black Power is a deeply radical work. As a coffee table size book full of graphics and sharp observations, the book captures the very tempo behind the rhetoric and controversies of the 1960s. The tempo behind the rhetoric and demands of the moment had its own root -- the project of reclaiming stolen human dignity. There's few things more radical than that and few better vehicles for it than the music this book celebrates.

As a work of history, Listen Whitey! will likely do much to familiarize a new generation to the histories of the Black Panther Movement, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and other pillars of the movement. Thomas, as a Music Historian, is uniquely positioned to communicate the politics here in a fresh, non-dogmatic language. Don't be surprised if after reading his book, you feel a burning desire to pump your fist in the air, fight the power, start a breakfast program for kids, or burn it all down. This is powerful stuff, respectfully written. It's a revolution you can dance to, literally. Listen Whitey also comes with its own soundtrack, sold separately.

I find the book very well written and very informative. The section on Martin L. King is especially informative.
It is interesting to learn of all the good work the Panthers accomplished and the misconceptions about what they were trying to do.

This album profoundly changed my life. I'm kind of joking, but also kind of not joking. You know what I mean?
