In Listen, Whitey! The Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975 author Pat Thomas examines rare recordings of speeches, interviews, and music from the Black Power Party, by noted activists Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Eldridge Cleaver, Elaine Brown, The Lumpen and many others. He also chronicles the forgotten history of Motown Records: from 1970 to 1973, Motown's Black Power subsidiary label, Black Forum, released politically charged albums by Stokely Carmichael, Amiri Baraka, Langston Hughes, Bill Cosby & Ossie Davis, and many others. Listen, Whitey! also spotlights obscure recordings produced by SNCC, Ron Karenga's US, the Tribe and other African-American sociopolitical organizations of the late 1960s and early '70s, Black Consciousness poetry, and inspired religious recordings that infused god and Black Nationalism.
