Book Party/ Reading: Waitin Till the Midnight Hour

Brecht Forum |
Waiting 'Til the Midnight Hour re-imagines the Black Power Movement, beginning a decade before Stokely Carmichael's defiant call for "Black Power!" in the stifling heat of Mississippi in the late spring of 1966. Along the way readers are introduced to a cast of historical characters—both iconic and obscure—that are international in scope. These include William Worthy, the globe trotting foreign correspondent, Dan Watts, the maverick publisher and activist, Albert Cleage, the radical clergyman from Detroit, and James Baldwin, the novelist whose essays came to distill the very essence of American racial life in the waning days of the New Frontier. Malcolm X was the common denominator that united black radicals from far-flung corners of the nation and, over time, the world. Covering the years 1955-1975, Waiting Till the Midnight Hour is a sweeping reinterpretation of the Black Power Movement. On virtually every single page, the narrative uncovers buried intimacies of a tumultuous era. more...  0 Comments
