3.4.4 Journal 1. When I was reading about the Black Power movement I realized it wasn't just militancy. The black power movement acutely questioned American society's failures, and still inspires today. Although the Black Power Movement mainly aimed racial problems, the movement’s impact has its influence on the development and strategies of later political and social movements. The Black Power Movement created a practical template for the overall restructuring of society. The movement also paved a way for diverse advantage of social justice movements, including black women rights, environmental movements, and homosexual rights. The Black Power movement gave priority and explored a black identity, movement activists were forced to confront issues of gender and class as well. Many of the activists in the Black Power Movement became active in related movements and I don't think we thank black power leaders enough for paving the way.
