    If my memory serves me correctly, there was one Angela Davis, who wore very thick Afro hair cut. I remember her on the news. There was a man who was also involved in the Black Power Movement I think Stokeley Carmichael. There was an incident somewhere in California where a judge and a couple of other people were killed....She was arrested....I think she is now Dr. Angela Davis a professor at one of the colleges in the USA. What I know is just what I saw on the news at the time. I was in my late teens, so that is about what I remember.

    I heard references to them being of the 'Joshu' generation, my own as the "Moses' variety...

    Again, I'm the last to know, smh!

    I remember the assassinations of JFK and Dr. King. I remember coming home from kindergarten and seeing the news of the JFK assassination. I remember the Watts Riot and the National Guard rolling down Vermont Ave. I remember the Black Campus Movement and the student protests and sit ins. I remember the shoot out between NOI defending the Los Angeles Mosque against the LAPD. I also remember the LAPD raid on the Black Panther headquarters on Central Avenue. I remember attending meetings with my Mom of the OAAU and her driving around sister Betty Shabazz. I remember the assassinations of RFK, Fred Hampton, Bunchy Carter, John Huggins and Sandra Pratt. I remember a lot of things that led to the Black power movement and I also remember Watergate and the Nixon impeachment hearings.

    CTJ:

    My and the point is too many who write about the Civil Rights Movement weren't a part of it, merely speak of it, etc.

    I. e., so few who were a part of it ever ran down 'how it all worked,' and/or what their true agenda was or is...

    What those reformists were or are advocating is one thing:

    Also what the mainstays of the equally influential Black Power movement did or said is quite another subject and/or reflects the rise of another movement entirely...

    Otherwise your feedback is both appreciated and quite welcomed...

    FYI
