Summary
"Black Fire, Nelson Peery's memoir, told the story of his childhood and teenage years during the Depression and his political awakening as a soldier in the all-Black 93rd Infantry Division in World War II." "In this sequel, Peery picks up where Black Fire ends, beginning with his integration back into civilian life following the war, and describing the development of his revolutionary consciousness as he attempts to move from first-class soldier to first-class citizen. Offering a rare perspective and a new vantage on the crucial historical period from 1946 through 1966, Black Radical covers the postwar grassroots struggle for equality led by Black veterans, the battles of the Black left and revolutionaries during the McCarthy inquisition, and the 1965 Watts rebellion. Along the way, Peery takes the reader on a journey that stretches from Minneapolis to Detroit, Cleveland, Harlem, and Los Angeles - featuring cameo appearances by Paul Robeson, Malcolm X, Haywood Patterson (one of the Scottsboro Boys), Alexander Trachtenburg, the Southern blues singer Leadbelly, and other notable figures."--BOOK JACKET
