Description: This is a pamphlet distributed at the controversial Black Power Forum held November 1-3, 1967 at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) explaining some of the principles behind the Black Power movement. The pamphlet discusses Black Power as a means of allowing black people to look out for their own needs in the face of the racist system which has been imposed upon them. There is also discussion of the “emasculation and loss of digntity” of American black men, and the idea that Black Power will restore this.
