Black PowerBlack Power
is an African-American
movement that arose in the 1960s focused on resisting discrimination independently from organizations that include white people. Black Power organizations emphasize self-defense tactics, political and economic self-determination, and racial pride. The most famous exponents of Black Power were the Black Panther Party
. While still in existence today, the movement was mostly defused and dispersed in the late 70s.
The first person to use the term in its political context was Robert Williams, a writer and publisher of the 1950s and 60s.
