He was both and intellectual and an activist, his work has made a profound impact on the political life of Britain from the 1970s to the 2010s. This collection of his writings ranges widely - over the history of black struggles against British racism from the 1940s to the uprisings of Brixton and Toxleth in 1981: the Black Panthers: immigration and race policies of British governments: and 'the liberation of the black intellectual', including essays on individuals such as James Baldwin, Angela Davis and Paul Robeson. -- Publisher description.
