Our very own Pat Thomas, author and co-producer of Listen Whitey! The Sounds of Black Power, 1965-1975 will engage in a lively discussion on the soundtrack of the Black Power movement with Rickey Vincent, author of Party Music: The Inside Story of the Black Panthers’ Band and How Black Power Transformed Soul Music. Both books examine the culture and politics of the Black Power era of the late 1960s, and explore the relationship of soul music to the Black Power movement from the vantage point of the musicians and black revolutionaries themselves. In addition, the event will include a multi-media presentation of rare images and unusual recordings that capture the ‘sights and sounds’ of the era and the movement.
