About this item

This book revisits and analyzes three of the most accomplished twentieth century black diaspora activists: Malcolm X (1925-1965), Stokely Carmichael (1941-1998), and Walter Rodney (1942-1980). All three began their careers in the Diaspora and later turned toward Africa. This became the foundation for developing and solidifying a global force that would advance the struggles of Africans and people of African descent in the Diaspora.

Adeleke engages and explores this "African-centered" discourse of resistance which informed the collective struggles of these three men. The book illuminates shared and unifying attributes as well as differences, presenting these men as unified by a continuum of struggle against, and resistance to, shared historical and cultural challenges that transcended geographical spaces and historical times.

Africa in Black Liberation Activism will be of interest to scholars and students of African-American history, African Studies, and the African Diaspora.
