"Compact yet comprehensive, Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement does a masterful job of distilling the best and most recent scholarship on civil rights and Black Power into easily digestible nuggets. This is the new starting point for studying the movement." -Hasan Kwame Jeffries, Associate Professor, The Ohio State University "Part breezy narrative, part comprehensive historiography, Yohuru Wiliam's Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement is a brilliant and much needed synthesis of the rich new bodies of scholarship that have redefined our understanding of the civil rights and black power movements." -George Derek Musgrove, Associate Professor, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
