Period was also marked by the eruption of massive rebellions in urban centers like Los  Angeles, Newark and Detroit reverberation of “Black Power” as a battle cry encapsulating the demands of Black poor  and working people and dispossessed young people for economic justice and an end to  police brutality and misconduct in America’s “dark ghettos.” Black Power spawned a new found “black consciousness” which included positive  identification with Africa and Black Nationalism which rejected “Integrationism” in favor  of the building of independent Black institutions, community control of places and  spaces where Blacks were in the majority – Black control of the Black community.  By 1970 Black America stood at a critical crossroads in terms of the  debate/divisions/tensions between Integrationism and Nationalism and the role of  electoral politics in addressing the needs of Black people, particularly Black poor and  working people. In 1970 that a major meeting was convened which would begin to bridge the ideological  divides between various ideological tendencies and organizations in the Black  community and set the stage for one of the most momentous events of the 20th century.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
