Revindicating the Black Power Movement
Ana María Arbeláez Trujillo in conversation with Bob Brown, organizer of the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC)
Since the 1960s, the leaders of the Black Power Movement have fought tirelessly to challenge institutional racism, to reclaim and reinterpret the history of black people and for the right to establish and change the terms to define them and their relationships with society.
Committed to this long legacy and revindication of black history, longtime activist and researcher Bob Brown visited ISS in February 2020 to participate in an event titled 'Black Power and the Politics of Liberation, in comparative perspective'. He talked about the origins of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense and the larger Black Panther Movement worldwide.
He conversed afterwards with Ana María Arbeláez Trujillo. Here is what he had to say.
