Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975

On Saturday, February 15th, noted author Pat Thomas will engage in a lively discussion of the soundtrack that accompanies the Black Power movement with his award-winning book, Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975!

Join him at the appropriately-named Revolution Books in Los Angeles at 3:00 PM!

He'll be joined by special guest Rickey Vincent, author of Party Music: The Inside Story of the Black Panthers' Band and How Black Power Transformed Soul Music (Chicago Review Press). Together, they'll examine the culture and politics of the Black Power era of the late 1960s, as these books explore the relationship of soul music to the Black Power movement from the vantage point of the musicians and black revolutionaries themselves.

Revolution Books is located at 5726 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles.
