More than five decades after some in the civil rights movement embraced a new slogan, “Black Power,” the phrase still elicits feelings of pride and urgency among those continuing the fight. Those two simple words transformed the movement from the nonviolent philosophy of Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lewis in the turbulent and transformative year of 1966.

In his new book, "Saying It Loud: 1966—The Year Black Power Challenged the Civil Rights Movement," journalist and author Mark Whitaker tells the story of the trials and triumphs of the Black Power generation. He takes us inside the movement and shows why the lessons from 1966 still resonate in the era of Black Lives Matter and the continuing battles over voting rights, identity politics, and the teaching of Black history.

On Tuesday, March 14, at 6 p.m. ET, join us online for a very special premiere of a discussion between Whitaker and Eugene Robinson, Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist for the Washington Post. Will include a live YouTube text chat Q&A with Whitaker.
