Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the definitive Black Power aural document. While somewhat controversial at the time, the tracks featured on this collection are not limited to only African-American artists. Amongst the speeches and powerful protest grooves, you'll find tracks from John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Roy Harper and the first ever CD release of Bob Dylan's 1971 'George Jackson' single, Includes the CD debut of many rare and essential late '60s/early '70s African-American protest songs and recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Key Word Is Listen March 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's interesting and amusing that someone prejudged this collection before he even heard it. The title comes from a Folkways album, which documented black commentaries on both the jailing of Huey Newton, as well as the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Still, if anyone is offended by putting a "y" after the word "white," then they're well advised to steer clear of this, even though the "N-word" is used far more often than any insults such as "cracker."

What this album does is document a different time, when black people were first feeling the freedom to express their anger and pride. A time when radicals spelled "America" with three k's instead of a c, and police were regularily referred-to as "pigs" by the same.

The anger wasn't just expressed by black people alone, as songs by white performers are included, most notably the rare single "George Jackson," by Bob Dylan. I admit that this one song's inclusion is the reason why I purchased this, and the rest of the collection makes me glad that I did. Back to the point, however, perhaps the most audacious title is "I Hate The White Man," which is written and performed by a white Englishman, Roy Harper. (It's an anti-imperialist song.)

Fans of rap music will enjoy discovering some of it's roots in this collection. Fans of Ani DiFranco will enjoy the Marlena Shaw track, "Woman Of The Ghetto." Fans of the late great Gil Scott-Heron will marvel at the rendition of "Winter In America." And anyone interested in the radical politics of the late '60s/early '70s, especially as it relates to the black power movement, will enjoy this collection immensely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Inflammatory about the title February 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Unlike others, this was not a word used to suppress or control since the American Black population at the time were in no position to do either... unlike 'whitey' who made the rules and broke them when he saw fit. At the time.

The CD is a must for anyone interested in the time and the times.
