Ready for Revolution: The Life & Struggles of Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture)

by Stokely Carmichael
£11.99   paperback  Scribner (2005)

Ready for Revolution: The Life & Struggles of Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture) by Stokely Carmichael Head of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee. Honorary prime minister of the Black Panther Party. Bestselling author. Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture) is an American legend, one whose work as a civil rights leader fundamentally altered the course of history - and our understanding of Pan-Africanism today. Ready for Revolution recounts the extraordinary course of his life, from his Trinidadian youth to his consciousness-raising years in Harlem to his rise as the patriarch of the Black Power movement. In his own words, Carmichael tells the story of his fight for social justice with candour, wit and passion - and a cast of luminaries that includes James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, Bayard Rustin, Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro among others. Carmichael's personal testimony captures the pulse of the cultural upheavals that characterise the modern world. This landmark, posthumously published autobiography reintroduces us to a man whose love of freedom fuelled his fight for revolution to the end.
