From the Schomburg Website: H. Rap Brown (Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin) was one of the youngest national leaders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and the Black Panther Party. Though the mainstream media criminalized him as a violent troublemaker, he was among the most brilliant voices of the Black Power generation. As 2019, marks the 50th anniversary of Rap Brown’s classic memoir Die! Nigger! Die! (1969), Arun Kundnani, who is writing a biography of Al-Amin, will join Akinyele Umoja and Robyn Spencer, two leading scholars of Black Power, for a conversation on Al-Amin's life and political legacy.

 

In Conversation: E. Moncell Durden and Vida L. Brown
