13417. The Rise of Black Nationalism in the United States.
This paper reviews two books which trace the rise of Black nationalism in the United States. Horne’s (1995) Fire This Time examines Black nationalism through the lens of the 1965 Watts uprising. Allen’s (1970) now-classic Black Awakening in Capitalist America provides an “analytic history” of Black revolt in 1960s America with the analysis informed by both political and sociological theory. Following a summary and analysis of the central theses and major themes in each work, the concluding section considers which book best explains the rise of Black nationalism in America during the 1960s. 10 pages, 21 footnotes, 2 bibliographic sources.
