The New Mood of Black America.
Moskowitz, Jack W.
This is a collection of articles, excerpts, poems, essays, and short stories dealing with the increasingly militant and aggressive posture now being assumed by certain segments of the Black community. It attempts to reflect, for the teacher and student, the direction in which great masses of Black Americans are currently moving. The initial chapter, Some Historical Considerations, attempts to compare the Black Revolution today with certain aspects of the American Revolution. Chapter two, Black Power, discusses various interpretations of this concept. Chapters three and four are concerned with the economic and political implications of Black Power. Chapter five, Brothers, discusses the legacy of Malcolm X and closes with statements concerning other alternatives open to Black America. Expression, chapter six, contains several poems and a discussion of the national controversy over the proper name for Americans of African descent, Negro vs. Afro-American vs. Black. The collection is designed to clarify the specific teaching episode prepared for grade 9 during the 1968-69 school year by the Task Force and will serve as a beginning in contemporary race relations.
