Black Power Timeline

Fairclough says black power adopted all of the qualities of pre-1964 Malcolm X: -bitter critique of nonviolence -call for black separatism -denunciation of white people (But AF says throughout the movement most blacks knew that these ideals were impratical/impossible) "in some respects... Black Power flowed from the success of the Civil Rights Movement, and was a logical extension of it. Having achieved legal equality, blacks needed to unite, and to organise effectively, in order to maximise their political and economic power"-AF
