About this title


Stories, essays and speeches capture the mood of the late 50s and early 60s. The opening essay describes the authors arrest and brutal treatment by the Los Angeles Police (paralleling the Rodney King incident). The final chapter documents the rise of the black liberation movement. Forman's riveting tales of oppression and liberation include the struggle to help blacks register to vote and his own imprisonment for this cause in Mississippi. Two stirring speeches to the United Nations condemn discrimination, apartheid, and colonialism. With commentary describing the relevance of each chapter to contemporary events, this book is a testament to the development of Formans thought and the richness of his written work.

Currently residing in Washington, D.C., he is president of the Unemployment and Poverty Action Committee (UPAC) and of the UPAC Fund, Inc. (a non-profit tax exempt organization). Highly respected as a historian and political thinker, Dr. Forman holds a B.A. in public administration from Roosevelt University, Chicago; a Masters degree of Professional Studies in African and African-American History from Cornell University; and a Ph.D. degree from the Union of Experimental Colleges and Universities, now known as the Union Istitute.
