The Struggle Is Eternal

The chapter starts by describing Gloria Richardson’s new life in New York City, but the story quickly moves back to Cambridge, Maryland. There, in the summer of 1967, she facilitated Black Power activist H. Rap Brown’s visit to speak to black residents who were continuing their freedom struggle. A massive fire in the city’s black community on the night of Brown’s visit was caused by arson and not, as is popularly believed, by black people rioting. That summer also saw the first gathering of Black Power advocates from around the country at the National Conference on Black Power in Newark, New Jersey. Richardson attended this event and was excited about Black Power’s potential to push the freedom struggle forward. Finally, the chapter covers her assessment of Black Power, specifically, its emphasis on black consciousness, and Stokely Carmichael’s and other Black Nationalists’ political strategies for achieving black liberation.
