Story | Jan 6, 2015 | 2:06 PMPeniel E. Joseph begins the narrative of his definitive 2014 biography of Stokely Carmichael on a humid Mississippi night. He describes the 24-year-old Carmichael speaking to a crowd in the open air on a warm, late-spring evening after his most recent arrest while organizing for change in 1966 America. “This is the twenty-seventh time I have been arrested,’” Joseph quotes him shouting. “With words that echoed through the night, Carmichael urged the crowd to take control of their destiny . . . ‘We want black power!’ [Carmichael] shouted. A thunderous reply of ‘Black Power!’ emanated from the crowd, sparking a call-and-response chant that gave the event the feel of an outdoor religious revival.”
