Description - Revolutionaries to Race Leaders by Cedric Johnson
Exploring the major political and intellectual currents from the Black Power era to the present, Cedric Johnson reveals how black political life gradually conformed to liberal democratic capitalism and how the movement's most radical aims-the rejection of white aesthetic standards, redefinition of black identity, solidarity with the Third World, and anticapitalist revolution-were gradually eclipsed by more moderate aspirations. Although Black Power activists transformed the face of American government, Johnson contends that the evolution of the movement as a form of ethnic politics restricted the
struggle for social justice to the world of formal politics.
